Professor’s poetry to be published

Dr. Carmela Lanza, assistant professor of English, has had three of her poems accepted for publication in the Louisiana State University publication Comparative Woman.  The three original poems are “Blood Moon,” “Continental Divide(s),” and “Seven Mothers.”   The journal editors noted of Dr. Lanza’s work, "Lacking any definite boundaries between poems, subjects, ideas etc. this trio of poems establish connections by drawing one’s attention to words. The speaker, a storyteller, uses words to create a sense of undefined space. One has to search for a center, an origin. Thus, space is merely a sense of something constantly shifting, something concrete and detailed enough to be centered in a border town, a home, a crib, and paradoxically something un-contained like wind, water, blood. As the reader attempts to establish and attach a limiting identity to the speaker, there is a constant shifting, moving, and escaping that resists labeling. In this way the speaker/storyteller makes a deep connection with the reader, one beyond the borders of skin; in blood, in spirit, like myth."  The mission of Comparative Woman is to create an environment that explores topics related to comparative literature and women/gender studies through poetry and academic essays from a multitude of perspectives
