Bronwen Tate

Bronwen Tate serves as Thinking Matters fellow. Her current book project, Large as Life: Scale in Post-1945 American Poetry, uses brevity and length as a lens to reevaluate 20th-century poetic theories and practices in writers including Lorine Niedecker, Jack Kerouac, Lyn Hejinian, and James Merrill. Bronwen’s interests include poetry and poetics, the ethics of reading, transnational literary studies, and writing pedagogy. She has taught courses in literature, aesthetics, creative writing, and composition at Stanford University, Brown University, Borough of Manhattan Community College and other institutions. Her research has been funded by a DARE (Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence) Fellowship and by a Geballe Dissertation Prize Fellowship at the Stanford Humanities Center. Her article “The Day and the Life: Gender and the Quotidian in Long Poems by Bernadette Mayer and Lyn Hejinian” is forthcoming from the Journal of Modern Literature.
