War Poet.ca - A CFAP Project by Suzanne Steele

Speaking in Toronto on 18 June at the Royal Canadian Military Institue

For those of you who live in the Toronto area, I will be the inaugural speaker of the Royal Canadian Military Institute’s First World War Commemorative speaker’s series. The title of my speech will be Bearing Witness to War and I will be talking about the Canadian tradition of the artist witness in the theatre of war with a focus on the Great War, the subject of my doctoral thesis, but also including my own.

In September I will be speaking twice in Oxford, first, on the American VAD Mary Borden and ‘re-facing’ the war through her book The Forbidden Zone, then later I will be speaking on David Jones and his influence on my work as a poet and video installation artist, especially in the context of his Catholicism and his use of form. Dates and locations tba.
