InterNations Zurich: Let's Celebrate the World's Poetry Day!
To get the zoom link please press "join meeting".
What is a poet? What is there in a poem? Come join us to this poetry event where Dr. Daniel Scarfo will be sharing with us some of his favourite poems and some answers given to these questions to discuss with us.
Daniel obtained his Ph.D. in Spanish and Portuguese at Yale University and also graduated as a sociologist at the University of Buenos Aires. He also studied Comparative Literature at the University of Puerto Rico and Portuguese Studies at the University of Lisbon and taught literature, humanities and social sciences at different universities in Argentina, Canada and U.S.A.
If you want, you will also have the opportunity to share your favorite poems in different breakout rooms (please be considerate and try to choose short ones so more people have time to share). Remember to bring also an English translation if the original poem is in another language.
Daniel would read poems divided in three sections of 4 poems each with two breakout rooms sections in between for people to share their poems, in rooms divided by languages.
Looking forward to seeing you!
