A Different Kind of Poetry Call-nShow


Drew Kerr is a PhD student in anthropology. While he intends for his research to engage the anthropology of militarized zones, he utilizes poetry as a tool to reflect, digest, and present his own and interlocutors’ struggles living the realities of such spaces. Having lived in India during the formative years of his political and social orientations, Drew draws on revolutionary forms and themes of South Asian poetries. Recently, Drew's exploration in poetry and performance has been nurtured by the community of the Washington, DC Guerilla Poetry Insurgency.
