Danielle Vogel

Danielle Vogel is a poet, lyric essayist, and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersections of queer and feminist ecologies, somatics, and ceremony. She is the author of four hybrid poetry collections, including Edges & Fray and a triptych of poetic texts: Between GrammarsThe Way a Line Hallucinates Its Own Linearity, and A Library of Light. Her installations and site responsive works have been displayed at RISD Museum, among other art venues, and adaptations of her work have been performed at such places as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Tjarnarbíó Theater in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Committed to an embodied, investigative approach to poetics, Danielle Vogel relies heavily on field research, cross-disciplinary studies, and archives of all kinds. Her work is guided by an ever-expanding investigation into the bonds between language and presence, between a reader and a writer, and how a book, as an extended field of a body, might serve as a site of radical transformation. Her installations, interdisciplinary, and site-responsive works—or "public ceremonies for language"—are often extensions of her manuscripts and seek to uncover, reroute, and tend to the archives of memory stored within bodies, languages, and landscapes. 

She holds a PhD in Literature & Creative Writing from The University of Denver, a MFA in Writing & Poetics from Naropa University and has taught across genres and the arts at Wesleyan University, Brown University, the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, and The University of Washington at Bothell. As a professor, Dr. Vogel specializes in investigative and documentary poetics, ecopoetics and environmental literatures, visual poetry, the lyric essay, memory and memoir, hybrid and experimental works, composing across the arts and book arts.
