Smith, U.S. poet laureate from 2017 to 2019. At each event, an interdisciplinary panel of faculty poets and scholars will present on subjects in their areas of expertise, such as poetics, social justice, immigration and indigenous land issues, that intersect with recent work by U.S. Poets Laureate. Students enrolled in the Spring 2021 CLU Honors English class Poetry and the National Consciousness will present selected poems of the poets laureate.
