    Performalist Poetics: An Exploratory Workshop

    Blues poems, corridos, the décima, rap, walk poems, the bop, the sound poem, and the found poem— discover and expand your knowledge of performance poetry with NY/Puerto Rican poet and SLAM expert Urayoan Noel. Examine poetic form and performance across cultures and contexts, exploring form as a point of departure for writing personal and social histories.


    Author, literary critic, translator, performer, and assistant professor of English and Spanish at New York University, Urayoán Noel’s new collection of poems, Buzzing Hemisphere/Rumor Hemisférico was recently published by the University of Arizona Press (2015). Other poetic works includeLos días porosos (2012), Hi-Density Politics (2010), Boringkén (2008), and Kool Logic/La lógica kool (2005). He is the author of the critical study In Visible Movement: Nuyorican Poetry from the Sixties to Slam (University of Iowa Press 2014), winner of the Latina/o Studies Book Prize.
