The Symposium and Roundtable offered a number of prominent American and Romanian poets the opportunity to meet and discuss, helping consolidate bridges between Romanian and U.S. culture, as underlined by Bruce Kleiner, Counselor for Public Affairs, U.S. Embassy, in his welcome speech.

More details about the event are included in the following review written by Gene Tanta.

“A most extraordinary thing happened June 13-15, 2013 in Bucharest: Romanian and American poets involved in very different projects had a frank and civil series of exchanges oscillating around one culturally vital question: how does biography relate to innovation? This master class, symposium and roundtable, and public poetry reading called “Identity and Form in Contemporary Innovative Poetry” would not have come to fruition without the generous funding of the American Embassy and the support of the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission.

poetry2Why these Americans? Why these Romanians? I know and respect each of them as a result of my personal experience with them. They represent a variety of aesthetic and ethical positions, and each one has the writer’s courage to get up in the morning look language in the face and see more than an instrument. On the first day of the symposium, Ioana Ieronim, Toby Altman, Elena Vlădăreanu, Vanessa Place, Răzvan Ţupa, Johannes Göransson, Jennifer Karmin, Andra Rotaru, Iulia Militaru, Chris Tanasescu, Caius Dobrescu, and myself offered a crowded master class to students at The University of Bucharest and The Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies (ASE). On day two of the event, we participated in a lively roundtable discussion graciously hosted by the Fulbright Commission. And on the final day of the event, we participated in a well-attended reading performance of our poems at the cultural space known as Tramvaiul Douazeci si Sase.

Finally, I thank the American poets for their adventurous spirit, goodwill, and confidence in joining us to establish new cross-cultural connections, creative collaborations, and friendships. I thank the Romanian poets for helping me catch a glimpse of the generation of poets to which I would have belonged had I not emigrated from Romania to the U.S. in 1984. I am documenting this glimpse with the research aspect of my Fulbright grant by editing an anthology called: Biography After Communism: Romanian Poetry After 1989.” - Gene Tanta, U.S. Fulbright Scholar
