Dan Rosenberg’s reflection on teaching a course on ekphrasis (poetry written in conversation with other artworks) in England this summer was published in Advanced Studies in England’s annual newsletter. This short essay touches on the Diamond Sutra, papyrus fragments, cannibalistic pigeons, accidentally breaking into an Oxford college, crying at Stonehenge, and the death of irony.

Associate Professor of English Dan Rosenberg led a generative workshop at the Aurora Free Library. The activity focused on creating collaborative poetry, and both Aurora residents and Wells students were in attendance. The event was coordinated by Jack Yeats ’25 as part of his internship at the Aurora Free Library, which aims to forge more connections between the College and the surrounding community.

Associate Professor of English Dan Rosenberg’s poem, “Esau Speaks against His Brother’s Word,” appears in the latest issue of IMAGE. It can be found online here: https://imagejournal.org/article/esau-speaks-against-his-brothers-word/. It’s both an acrostic and a syllabic poem, because Dan likes making things harder for himself.

Dan Rosenberg, Associate Professor of English, spent five weeks this summer teaching a poetry writing course, Ecstatic Ekphrastics, in England. The course was selected in a competitive process by the Advanced Studies in England team, who seemed unafraid of its inscrutable title.

Associate Professor of English Dan Rosenberg collaborated with Kasia Ozga (Visiting Assistant Professor of Sculpture at Oberlin College) to create an exhibition in the String Room Gallery at Wells College January 24 — February 16. The exhibition, RE_MOVE, featured Rosenberg’s poetry and Ozga’s images, which they produced through a transatlantic dialogue in image and text from 2019-2020, where each new work arose in response to prior works from the other collaborator. For this exhibition, Rosenberg explored the various ways in which poetry might inhabit a gallery space, and Ozga created a site-specific installation using the same processes and materials she used to create the handmade paper for their collaboration.da

On November 17, Dan Rosenberg, associate professor of English, gave a reading at LeMoyne College, with fellow poet Phil Memmer.
