Puerto Rican Poetic Resistance(s) to Continued Colonialism: Interactive workshop with Dr. Melinda González
November 4, 2021 @ 5:00 PMFree
Poetry-based art movements have functioned as an important locus of community organizing and political discourse across both Puerto Rico and the U.S. since at least the 1930s. In this interactive workshop, scholar-activist-poet Dr. Melinda González will perform poems, facilitate a poetry writing workshop, and discuss the role of poetry spaces in disaster recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria across the Puerto Rican diaspora.
This workshop is sponsored by the Evelyn Danzig Haas ’39 Visiting Artists Program, the Marshall Center for Intercultural Learning, WorldFest, and the Departments of English and Anthropology.
