Conversation with Dubravka Djurić (44:53): MP3
This is the second of two shows. The first, a poetry reading by Djurić, was recorded on April 29, 2007, and is available at her PennSound page.
Dubravka Djurić is the most significant and innovative Serbian poet, translator, editor, and advocate of her generation. She is the coeditor, with Biljana Obradović, of the crucial 2016 anthology of contemporary Serbian poetry, Cat Painters from Diálogos / Lavender Ink. She is also the coeditor, with Miško Šuvaković, of Impossible Histories: Historic Avant-Gardes, Neo-Avant-Gardes, and Post-Avant-Gardes in Yugoslavia, 1918–1991 from MIT Press (2006). Djurić was a Poetics Program Fellow in Buffalo in the spring of 1994. James Sherry and I visited her in Beograd in the spring of 1991.
