Collaborating with Machines: Humans, Poems and Technology in Dundee
From mills and engineering to cash machines and computers, Dundee is a city of technology. It is also a city of poetry. Weavers and railway workers used the rhythms of their work in writing, and the triumph and disaster of the Tay Bridge inspired more poems than any other event in Dundeeâ€™s history. Today, poets interpret the city in a digital age - and the ways we write and encounter poetry change too. Dundeeâ€™s Makar, acclaimed poet WN Herbert, and Erin Farley of the Central Libraryâ€™s Local History Centre, will explore the close and often uneasy relationship between humans, words and machines, and the many ways Dundeeâ€™s singers and poets have used technology for inspiration over the years. Free, but booking essential at Eventbrite.
