Jena Osman presents Motion Studies
In conversation with Cathy Park Hong

Jena Osman’s new poetry collection Motion Studies, called “a tour de force” by fellow poet Douglas Kearney, consists of three essay-poems that begin as meditations on 19th century science and end firmly as research into the present. From chronophotography to algorithmic surveillance, from phrenology to fMRI brain scans, from Victorian specimen collections to the bleached bones of the Great Barrier Reef, each poem in this collection explores technologies of knowing each other and the world we’re in. Osman presents her book with a reading and conversation with fellow poet Cathy Park Hong.
