Gallatin Teachers Reading: Antoon, Baiocchi, Goldfarb, Stanley

Gallatin Teachers Reading, a Writing Program event series at which professors read from recently published books, offers a glimpse into the Gallatin faculty's latest scholarship and writing.

Sinan Antoon reads from The Book of Collateral Damage (al-Fihrist) (Yale University Press, 2019), a novel following an Iraqi scholar's return to Baghdad in the wake of the 2003 U.S. invasion, recently released in an English translation by Jonathan Wright.

Gianpaolo Baiocchi reads from We, the Sovereign (Wiley, 2018), which asks what it means for the people to actually rule and proposes a radical utopia of popular self-rule.

Lisa Goldfarb reads from Unexpected Affinities: Modern American Poetry and Symbolist Poetics (Sussex Academic Publishing, 2018) which studies the influence of Wallace Stevens and Paul Valéry, and symbolist poetics more broadly, on a range of Anglo-American poets.

Matthew Stanley reads from Einstein's War: How Relativity Triumphed Amid the Vicious Nationalism of World War I (Dutton, 2019), an account of how Einstein’s world-changing theory developed during the violence and turmoil of the Great War.
