Lauren Terry is an AHRC / Midlands3Cities doctoral researcher at Nottingham Trent University. Lauren’s critical-creative thesis explores the synaptic connections between (neuro)psychoanalysis, modernist poetic language, and material objects in the work of Amy Lowell, Lola Ridge, Mina Loy, Gertrude Stein, and the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. Her research interests include literary modernism, thing theory, neuroplasticity, assemblage, material cultures, and psychoanalysis. Lauren’s poems have appeared in various anthologies and online poetry journals, including Molly Bloom and Anthropocene. Her debut poetry pamphlet, Museum of Lost and Broken Things, is forthcoming with Leafe Press.
