    BONUS Episode: ModPo's Davy and Anna on Teaching Online and Accessibility

    BONUS Episode: ModPo's Davy and Anna on Teaching Online and Accessibility

    Tune in for this podcast-only episode with host C. R. Grimmer and the instructors behind ModPo, Anna and Davy, as they discuss the importance behind open-access education around poetry. Accessibility takes on multiple valences in this conversation, from thinking about the disability or self-termed "crip" communities to accessible costs, to geographic location. ModPo also has a large international base of students and colleagues who are studying a largely Americanist archive; Davy and Anna are generous in this episode about dipping into the ethics and histories around how we teach a poetry archive, how we negotiate meaning, and ways we can both critique power dynamics and create new, more livable futures.

Divers and heartfelt

A wondrous space that acknows its positionality as a tool for both the learners and the teachers. A wonderful approach — never loses its focal point as an art form, an expression.

Downright fun. I wish that I had discovered this long ago. Hope this lasts forever.

True Hearted Poetry

I’ve been listening to this podcast (and watching the vlog) for maybe 6 months to a year now, and it blows me away how much intellectual and cultural ground Chelsea covers in her episodes. She always produces something that blows my mind and makes me consider poetry/pop culture from a different point of view. Her guests are always eloquent, fun, and fascinating. I love love love this podcast!
