“I thought I was going to have work all spring and summer to cover the cost of the program, but the Global Opportunities Scholarship made it possible for me to ...focus on school instead of worrying about the financial impact of studying abroad,” says Augustin Castro, a University of Washington College of Engineering major that studied engineering in Rome last summer.

Think how differently this sculpture's rhetoric would read had the restorationists chosen a pedestal with a wider circumference. As it is, she steps from her post and into an all too believable world. Statue: 2nd century; pedestal: 1881. Nice work, past humans.

Join us for an amazing evening with Paisley Rekdal, award-winning poet and current poet laureate of Utah.

Rekdal grew up in Seattle, Washington, the daughter of a Chinese American mother and a Norwegian father. She earned a BA from the University of Washington, an MA from the University of Toronto Centre for Medieval Studies, and an MFA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She is the author of the poetry collections A Crash of Rhinos (2000), Six Girls Without Pants (20...02), The Invention of the Kaleidoscope (2007), and Imaginary Vessels (2016), as well as the book of essays The Night My Mother Met Bruce Lee: Observations on Not Fitting In (2000).

In reviewing The Invention of the Kaleidoscope for Barn Owl Review, Jay Robinson observed that it’s “the razor’s edge that always accompanies eros that makes the poems of Paisley Rekdal fresh, intense and ultimately irresistible.” Rekdal’s work grapples with issues of race, sexuality, myth, and identity while often referencing contemporary culture.

Rekdal has been honored with a National Endowment of the Arts Fellowship, a Pushcart Prize, a Village Voice Writers on the Verge Award, and a Fulbright Fellowship to South Korea. Her work has been included in numerous anthologies, including Legitimate Dangers: American Poets of the New Century (2006) and the 2010 Pushcart Prize Anthology.

Rekdal teaches at the University of Utah. In April 2013, Rekdal was a featured writer on Harriet. #uwromecenter #poetry #poetryreading
