The American Literature Section (English Department) at Uppsala University is delighted to announce a conversation between American poet and translator Ron Padgett and Danish radio producer, translator, sound artist and poet Pejk Malinovski centred on visual artist, memoirist and poet Joe Brainard. Ron was best friends with Brainard from the days they edited The White Dove Review at their high-school in Tulsa Oklahoma in the 1950s. Pejk translated Brainard's legendary book I Remember into Danish. Daniel Kane, recently appointed Professor in American Literature at Uppsala, will chair the event. Ron, Pejk and Daniel will also read selections from Brainard’s work.
