Molly Spencer was selected as a Summer Faculty Fellow by U-M’s Institute for the Humanities to study form in free verse poetry and will examine recent innovations in identity poetics in a time of racial justice advocacy, the poetics of trauma, and disability poetics.
Eight U-M lecturers and tenure-track faculty, and eight graduate students will be fellows at the institute during the 2021-22 academic year.
The Fellows will meet virtually, forming an intellectual community while pursuing original research and participating in regular, cross-disciplinary fellows’ seminars. Fellowship recipients represent diverse disciplines within the humanities and span several colleges and schools across the university, this year including U-M Flint, public policy, art and design, and architecture.
