Alumna J.C. Todd (poetry, ’90) has been selected as a 2014 Pew Fellow by the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage. From the announcement:
“J.C. Todd’s poems investigate the impact of war, with an insistent eye and ear on language. Her current project, War Zone, explores containments and outbursts of resistance, with sonnets that “complicate and contemporize the tradition of war poems.” Todd’s writing seeks out the tender moments that exist in contrast to devastation. “If language bears the trace of war, how can that be revealed and perhaps shaken loose?” she asks.”
