Alessandra Capperdoni

ALESSANDRA CAPPERDONI teaches modern
and contemporary literature and critical theory
at Simon Fraser University. She is currently
working on a book manuscript, Shifting
Geographies: Poetics of Citizenship in the Age
of Global Modernity
. Her first encounter with
George Bowering’s poetry was during her
undergraduate studies at the Università degli
Studi di Bologna in Italy, where Bowering was
invited to read his work. The spell of his voice
inspired her to explore Canadian postmodern
poetics further.
