Nomi Stone is a poet and an anthropologist, and the author of two poetry collections, Stranger’s Notebook (TriQuarterly) and Kill Class (Tupelo)—a book based on two years of fieldwork she conducted within war trainings in mock Middle Eastern villages erected by the US military across America. A former Fulbright scholar and winner of a Pushcart Prize, her poems appear recently in POETRY Magazine, American Poetry Review, The New Republic, The Best American Poetry, Tin House, New England Review, and elsewhere. In 2018, her poem, “War Poem” was turned into a film in Motion Poems Season 8, “Dear Mr. President,” and her anthropological articles appear in Cultural Anthropology and American Ethnologist. Stone has an MFA in Poetry from Warren Wilson, a PhD in Anthropology from Columbia, and an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies from Oxford. Formerly a postdoctoral research fellow in Anthropology at Princeton University, Stone is currently an associate professor UT Dallas.
