Visiting scholar, Hannah Star Rogers, is a poet, scholar, and curator and is currently contributing a range of classes to Creative Writing at Strathclyde. She received her MFA in poetry from Columbia University and Ph.D. at Cornell University on the intersection of art and science. At Strathclyde, Hannah is teaching the non-fiction writing modules for the M. Litt course (P3960: Creative Writing Workshop 2) and P3306: Writing Real Life.
Hannah’s poetry mixes extraordinary language with ordinary situations: our ears' relationship with seashells, our ways of talking to the rats that share our houses, the lovers the U.S.’s National Security Agency imagines for us, and the multiplicity of reproductive habits of exotic plants. Her poems and reviews have appeared in Gutter: the magazine of new Scottish and international writing, Kenyon Review, Boston Review, Los Angeles Review of Books, Tupelo Quarterly, Carolina Quarterly, and TSR.
Her scholarly research investigates the way the categories of art and science are appropriated to construct bodies of knowledge. She is the first editor of the Routledge Handbook of Art, Science, and Technology Studies under contract with Routledge Press. Hanah also works at the intersection of art and science. Her current exhibit Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology: Shaping Our Genetic Futures, will be held October 2019-March 2020, with a symposium, at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design, the North Carolina Museum of Art, and venues at the NC State Library system.
