Poetry That De/Recenters with Poet
Decolonizing Humanities and the Department of Modern Language and Literature’s Bellini Lecture Series have organized a semester long workshop examining how coloniality, settler-colonialism, and decoloniality within “North American” and global context intersect with teaching and learning at William & Mary. We will explore how our various positions function to ensure settler-colonial, capitalist, white-supremacist and cis-heteronormative patriarchal futures.
Juana Iris Goergen (Puerto Rico), Azad Ashim Sharma (UK, Director of the 87Press), and Oscar Guardiola-Rivera (Colombia) are poets, scholars, writers and publishers.
They will read and discuss their work live and answer questions and engage in a discussion with W&M faculty and students.
The event will be moderated by Prof. Emily Wilcox (Chinese, W&M) and some of the poems in Spanish will be read in the original and read in translation by Prof. Silvia Tandeciarz (Hispanic Studies, W&M).
