Long Bio —
Danielle Vogel is a poet, lyric essayist, and interdisciplinary artist working at the intersections of queer and feminist ecologies, somatics, and ceremony. She is the author of Edges & Fray (Wesleyan University Press 2020), The Way a Line Hallucinates Its Own Linearity (Red Hen Press 2020), Between Grammars (Noemi Press 2015), the artist book Narrative & Nest (Abecedarian Gallery 2012), and the chapbooks In Resonance (Essay Press 2017) and lit (Dancing Girl Press 2008). Her forthcoming manuscript, A Library of Light, was adapted to the stage as an experimental opera by Source Material Collective under the mentorship of Marina Abramović, premiering to rave reviews at Tjarnarbio Theatre in Reykjavík, Iceland. She is currently working with composer P. Matthusen on collaborations and scores for Edges & Fray and her manuscript-in-process, Sea Margin: a prophecy in reverse.
Vogel's installations, collaborations, and interdisciplinary works, or "public ceremonies for language," are often extensions of her manuscripts and seek to uncover, reroute, and tend to the living archives of memory shared between bodies, languages, and landscapes. They have been exhibited most recently at Carnegie Hall, Bruna Press + Archive, The Nordic House in Reykjavík, Iceland, RISD Museum, MICA, The Allen Ginsberg Library, Temple and Pace Universities, University of Arizona’s Poetry Center, and Abecedarian Gallery.
She holds a PhD in Literature & Creative Writing from The University of Denver, a MFA in Writing & Poetics from Naropa University and has held visiting positions, teaching across genres, at Brown University, the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, and The University of Washington at Bothell.
Vogel is an associate professor at Wesleyan University, where she teaches workshops in innovative poetics, investigative and documentary poetics, ecopoetics, memory and memoir, the lyric essay, and composing across the arts. She also runs a private practice as an herbalist through which she offers consultations and botanical remedies. Vogel makes her home in the Connecticut River Valley on the ancestral lands of the Hammonassets and Wappinger peoples, with her partner, the writer and artist, Renee Gladman.
