Arkadii Trofimovich Dragomoshchenko (1946-2012), who made his debut in underground magazines in the late Soviet period, lived in Saint Petersburg for most of his adult life. After meeting the American poet Lyn Hejinian in 1983, Dragomoshchenko helped orchestrate literary collaborations between the Language School poets of the U.S. and Moscow meta-realists during and after Perestroika. The winner of several prizes, he published and translated broadly, introducing Russian readers to American poetry of the second half of the 20th century. He occasionally toured the U.S. and taught at NYU, among other institutions.

The event will feature: Lyn Hejinian (poet, essayist, translator, author of “My Life”); Charles Bernstein (poet, essayist, editor of L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E); Jacki Ochs (filmmaker, director of “Letters Not About Love”); Mikhail Iossel (author, founder of Summer Literary Seminars); Mikhail Iampolski (professor of Russian and Slavic Studies at NYU); Matvei Yankelevich (editor of Ugly Duckling Presse); Genya Turovskaya (poet, translator); John High (poet, translator); Serguei Artiushkov; and Eugene Ostashevsky (master teacher in NYU’s Liberal Studies Program).

Editor’s Note
Liberal Studies at NYU houses the Global Liberal Studies Bachelor of Arts and the Core Program. Liberal Studies offers a unique educational opportunity that combines the advantages of a small liberal arts program with the resources of a major research university. Both programs at Liberal Studies are distinguished by small classes, creating an environment where faculty and student work closely together in a community dedicated to learning. The Core Program is a two-year foundation program for students who will complete their education in one of the university's other undergraduate schools. Global Liberal Studies (GLS) is an innovative bachelor's program that features core course work in the liberal arts with a focus on great works in a global context. All GLS students spend their junior year abroad at an NYU site and pursue highly individualized study as seniors. Graduates of GLS will be world citizens, proficient in a foreign language, engaged in international cultures, and well prepared to enter the world of work or for admission to professional and graduate schools.
