Poet-provocateur Moez Surani reads from ةيلمع Operación Opération Operation 行 动 Oперация—a book-length poetic inventory of contemporary rhetoric of violence and aggression, as depicted through the evolution of the language used to name the many military operations conducted by UN Member Nations since the organization’s inception in 1945. After the reading, Julie Trébault, Director of the Artists At Risk Coalition at PEN America, will moderate a discussion and Q&A.

This event is co-hosted by the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice, the Creative Writing Program at Fordham University, and Kundiman.
