Dr. Moscaliuc Co-hosts Virtual ‘Border Lines: Poems of Migration’ Event

Dr. Mihaela Moscaliuc, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English, co-hosted a virtual poetry reading along with Kathy Engel, MFA chair and Associate Arts Professor at New York University’s Tisch School of Arts on Sunday, November 15, 2020.

The reading from Border Lines: Poems of Migration (eds Moscaliuc & Waters, Knopf 2020) was a truly magical event. The poems in the collection detail contemporary immigration experiences such as assimilation into American culture, conflicting identities, and the shifting of language. The event was particularly well attended with over 80 participants, yet also felt very intimate.

The thirteen poets were: Kaveh Akbar, Lory Bedikian, Andrei Codrescu, Kimiko Hahn, Esther Lin, Shara McCallum, Yesenia Montilla, Dzvinia Orlowsky, Alicia Ostriker, Ira Sadoff, Adrienne Su, Mai Der Vang, and Sholeh Wolpé. They read their own anthologized piece along with another Border Lines poem by another contributor. The poems illuminated some of the richness and diversity of contemporary immigration experiences in the U.S. and around the world.

“Readings like this bring people together and create or renew a sense of community we desperately need right now…I truly believe poetry can make things happen.” — Mihaela Moscaliuc, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English
