Anatomy of My Mixed Body

$20.00

by Katharine Threat
Publishing date: September 16, 2022

Mainstream American culture asks us to label and define ourselves in clearly marked, rigid boxes. But definitions, meaning, and identity are always shifting. The only thing that lingers in their wake is the impact we, the meaning makers, have on the people and places we encounter. Anatomy of My Mixed Body is an eco-poetic conversation led by Katharine Threat, in which she addresses lived experiences of displacement and homecoming, and imagines a world in which seemingly disparate pieces of land and identity converge into one body. Threat’s poems demonstrate the possibility of reconciliation of the mixed body that is all too often jettisoned from cultural narratives.
