Danielle Vogel

Danielle Vogel is a long-form poet, lyric essayist, and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersections of poetry, deep ecology, and ceremony. She is the author of The Way a Line Hallucinates its Own Linearity (Red Hen Press 2020), Edges & Fray (Wesleyan University Press 2019), Between Grammars (Noemi Press 2015), the artist book Narrative & Nest (Abecedarian Gallery 2012), and the chapbooks In Resonance (Essay Press 2017) and lit (Dancing Girl Press 2008). Vogel is committed to an investigative approach to poetics and, as such, relies heavily on field research, cross-disciplinary studies, and archives of all kinds. Her work explores the bonds between language and presence, between a reader and a writer, and how a book, as an extended ecological field of a body, might serve as a site of radical transformation. Her installations, or "public ceremonies for language," which often seek to expose or activate the archives of memory stored within language, have been exhibited most recently at Bruna Press + Archive, The Nordic House in Reykjavik, Iceland, RISD Museum, MICA, Temple and Pace Universities, The University of Arizona’s Poetry Center, and Abecedarian Gallery. 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 the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, The University of Washington at Bothell, Brown University, and Wesleyan University. As a professor, Vogel specializes in investigative and documentary poetics, ecopoetry, visual poetry, the lyric essay, memory and memoir, cross-genre works, interdisciplinary arts and book arts. You can read her Faculty Reflection  on the themes of reimagining success and crossing thresholds with intention at Wesleyan’s 2018 Senior Voices.
