About Me

My photo
Thanks to a residency at EcoHealth, my verse these days finds inspiration in the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at LMU M√ľnchen, where I tutor and edit circulars on poetics and composition, I'm anatomizing the prosody of Robinson's sonnets—I also teach at MVHS and lead the Amerikahaus Literary Circle.

Aktion zum Erhalt des Amerika Hauses

Dear Public Affairs, United States Consulate General, Munich:


Knowing the iconic presence the Amerika Haus has had here since its inception (and being aware that its continuance is imminently threatened), I am disappointed to have learned today from your office that ("as a diplomatic institution") you are unable to even acknowledge, let alone promote, today's demonstration of support for its programs. After all, this vital intercultural institution--which has done (and continues to do) so much for American interests--was founded (and abandoned) by the U.S. government.


Sincerely,
Mark Olival-Bartley
