Instructor: Ed Roberson
ED ROBERSON is a renowned poet whose most recent book is Asked What Has Changed, a finalist for the 2022 Griffin Poetry Prize and just named a chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. Originally from Pittsburgh, Roberson now lives in Chicago, where he has taught at the University of Chicago, Columbia College, and Northwestern University. He published his first poetry collection in 1970 and has won numerous prizes for his many books since then, including the 2020 Jackson Poetry Prize. The judges for this prize praised him as "both scholar and jazz-like innovator" and declared that "Roberson’s poems work a way into your heart and consciousness, because he is a visionary of luminous detail, of histories, of what he has felt and lived and observed." His various influences and themes include the environment, spirituality, visual art, music, and his extensive travels, including an odyssey across America and back on a motorcycle. USN is thrilled to bring Roberson to campus as our Author in Residence this year, and we invite our community to join us for a public reading of his work.
