NON SMETTERE DI LEGGERE LIBRI PERCHE’ USI LA RETE, SCOPRI TANTO DELLA LETTERATURA AMERICANA DIRETTAMENTE DA UN GRANDE ARCHIVIO SUL WEB
The Naropa Archive Project is preserving and providing access to over 3500 recordings made at Naropa University since 1974. The collection was developed under the auspices of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics (the name of the university’s Department of Writing and Poetics) founded by poets Anne Waldman and Allen Ginsberg and contains readings, lectures, seminars, panels and workshops from a constellation of artists who aim at restoring the poet’s ancient role as keeper of the culture and social commentator.
Current widespread interest in Oriental religions, environmentalism, political activism, ethnic studies, and women’s consciousness is directly indebted to the work of the New American Poets, writers and musicians in the collection.
The mission of the Naropa Archive Project is to enhance appreciation and understanding of post-World War II American literature and its role in social change and cultural criticism.
Partial funding for this project was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and Save America’s Treasures. If this collection is important to you please help us preserve it with your donations.
