Walt Whitman: An American Icon
Start Date: 4/18/2013Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 4/18/2013End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:
Walt Whitman’s legacy—iconoclast, celebrity and the father of American poetry—is unparalleled in its influence on American writing and culture. David Haven Blake and Michael Robertson, professors of English at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and co-editors of Walt Whitman, Where the Future Becomes Present will discuss the impact that Whitman has had on American culture—an impact that reaches far beyond his influence on poetry. Blake is also the chair of the English Department at TCNJ, and author of Walt Whitman and the Culture of American Celebrity. Robertson is the recipient of two National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowships and author of the award-winning book Worshiping Walt: The Whitman Disciples (Princeton UP, 2008). This program will be moderated by Katherine Henry, associate professor of English at Temple.
