Cynthia Hogue is Emeritus Professor in the Department of English. She has published seven collections of poetry, most recently, "The Incognito Body" (2006), "Or Consequence" (2010), and the co-authored "When the Water Came: Evacuees of Hurricane Katrina(interview-poems with photographs by Rebecca Ross ), also published in 2010. Among her honors are a Fulbright Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in poetry, the H.D. Fellowship at the Beinecke Library at Yale University, an Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant, and the Witter Bynner Translation Residency Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute.

Also known for her criticism, Hogue has published essays on poetry, ranging from that of Emily Dickinson to Kathleen Fraser and Harryette Mullen. Her critical work includes the co-edited editions "We Who Love To Be Astonished: Experimental Feminist Poetics and Performance Art" (U of Alabama P, 2001); "Innovative Women Poets: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry and Interviews" (U of Iowa P, 2006); and the first edition of H.D.’s "The Sword Went Out to Sea (Synthesis of a Dream), by Delia Alton" (UP of Florida, 2007).
