Tina Chang

Live Oak Reading with Tina Chang

Thursday Feb 20 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Born in Oklahoma, poet Tina Chang moved with her family to New York City when she was a year old. As a child, Chang was sent to live with family in Taiwan for two years before returning to New York. She earned a BA at SUNY-Binghamton and an MFA at Columbia University.

Chang is the author of the poetry collections Half-Lit Houses (2004) and Of Gods & Strangers (2011). Her work has been featured in the anthologies Asian American Poetry: The Next Generation (2004) and From the Fishouse: An Anthology of Poems that Sing, Rhyme, Resound, Syncopate, Alliterate, and Just Plain Sound Great (2009). She coedits the anthology Language for a New Century: Contemporary Poetry from the Middle East, Asia, and Beyond (2008).

The first woman to be named poet laureate of Brooklyn, New York, Chang discussed her appointment with the New York Times: “The ultimate goal is to break down the wall between people and poetry,” Chang noted. “Somewhere along the way, we have felt intimidated by it, or we have felt we have to be well-educated in order to be able to access it or walk into that world.”

Chang has received awards from the Academy of American Poets, Barbara Deming Memorial Fund, Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, and Van Lier Foundation. She has also been granted residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Vermont Studio Center, and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She lives in Brooklyn.

About English Department

Live Oak Reading with Tina Chang
Since 1873, the English Department has remained at the heart of academics at TCU. As one of the largest departments on campus, we are proud to work with students at every level in their education, from first-year writing and literature courses to doctoral studies in English or Rhetoric and Composition. Today, the English Department approaches both venerable and popular subjects – from Jane Austin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Kenneth Burke or missionary writers, radical journalists, and comic books – with traditional and cutting edge tools. We work in both dusty and digital archives to advance knowledge about the centrality of culture in our lives. Our faculty have garnered significant scholarly recognitions in a broad range of intellectual areas, with special focus on British, American, and postcolonial literatures, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing. The department offers two majors in English and Writing, a minor in these areas, as well as Creative Writing, and the Ph.D. in English or Rhetoric and Composition.
