Professor McLoughlin’s Inaugural Lecture

NigelNigel McLoughlin, Professor of Creativity and Poetics at the University of Gloucestershire, will deliver his inaugural lecture this Wednesday. His lecture – Writing Poetry: Experiments in Language With Language – will discuss how poetry functions as a means of generating new knowledge, what that new knowledge might be, and how by extension the creative arts more generally may be understood as research.

He said: “The lecture will explore the various different types of knowledge that inhere in poems and the ways in which poets go about generating new knowledge. It will use close analysis of an example poem to show ways in which poems may be thought of as experiments in language with language.”

The lecture is in TC014 at the Park Campus from 6.30pm, with refreshments from 5.30pm, this Wednesday June 5th. For more information or to book, please contact staff at
