Sears' translations of avant-garde poetry by women from the past 100 years have recently appeared in A Public Space, Chicago Quarterly Review, Drunken Boat, and Hotel Amerika. She has published translations of contemporary and Renaissance Italian poetry, with a particular focus on women poets and anti-war poetry. She recently completed the translation of an experimental volume from 1915 by Italian poet Ardengo Soffici, Simultaneities and Lyric Chemisms. She is the author of two works of original poetry and images, self/cell and photo/synthesis, both in collaboration with multimedia visual artist Aline Mare.

This reading is made possible by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences, the Department of English, and the Walton Family Foundation.
