The American Studies Consortium and the Global Postcolonialisms Collective present a hybrid creative-critical presentation by Prof. Urayoán Noel (NYU). The first part is a critical exploration of the Instagram work of queer migrant Latinx poets, highlighting how their memes and hashtags embody a self-reflexive poetics of polemic (a "poemics") that challenges hegemonic Latinidad. The second part is a poetry reading and performance that interrogates the complexities of digital and embodied politics from an "unincuirporated" queer Puerto Rican perspective, in "poemic" conversation with the work of the poets previously discussed. The performance is followed by a Q&A.
