In Fall 2008, Dr. Marit MacArthur spent a semester at the University of Lodz in Poland, working on collaborative translation of contemporary Polish poetry and researching the influence of the New York School poets, especially Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery, on recent Polish poetry. Some of her collaborative translations have appeared or are forthcoming in American Poetry Review, World Literature Today, VERSE, and Poetry International.
