Of Bridges: a Poetic and Philosophical Account by Thomas Harrison | Book Launch
May 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
In conversation with Professors Marjorie Perloff of Standford and Christy Wampole of Princeton.
A rich compendium of literary, architectural, and musical figurations, Harrison’s Of Bridges gives a panoramic account of diverse meanings of bridges in seemingly unrelated times and places, questioning why they are built and where they lead. It examines bridges of thought and art, bridges as flash points in war, the links forged by religion between transience and eternity, the mega-bridges of our globalized world, the real and symbolic crossings facing migrants each day, and the affective connections that form and transform cultural communities.
