DBLAC Reading Series- Mother Body: A Conversation with Diamond Forde

This is a past event.

This evening, Diamond Forde will be in conversation. They will discuss MOTHER BODY.

MOTHER BODY is an intersectional exploration of the trauma and agency held within a body defined by its potential to mother. As MOTHER BODY unfolds, it tasks its reader to understand the expected and unexpected manifestations of motherhood, through menstruation and womb work, but also generational, societal, and literary mothering. With a variety of forms and modes, these poems unpack the experiences of a fat, black woman's body while also manifesting joy, resistance, and celebration.

This conversation is a part of DBLAC's Spring 2022 Reading Series and is supported by the University of Pittsburgh's Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education's Center for Urban Education

DBLAC (Digital Black Lit and Composition) is a learning community and an intellectual project committed to Black knowledge-making and sharing. DBLAC operates from a multilayered understanding and enactment of community that exists within the academy, across institutions, and with communities beyond institutions directly connected to DBLAC. In every space, the support of Black scholarship is central. Through signature programs that offer writing help, mentorship, networking, and resource-pooling, DBLAC creates public spaces that promote undisciplined communication, not limited to any disciplinary area of study, through the use of Black feminist, womanist, and communal practices.
