Elizabeth Bidwell Goetz

Interested in the relationships connecting physical space and social possibility that exists within it, Liz studies the poetics of the New York School, as well as the New American Poetry's antecedents in modernist literature, particularly in terms of these genres' various rethinkings of the flâneur strutting through an urban wonderland.
