Kool

Looks like some of my work is going to be studied at the university level.

Topic: Chicano Poetry and Poetics - *H

This seminar is an exploration of the history and culture that informs the social and political movements of Chicano poetry from the 1960s to the present. Students will learn to explicate, analyze and contextualize a variety of poetic strategies and are expected to apply that knowledge in class discussions, presentations and research papers. Readings for study will include selections by early pioneers such as José Montoya, Gloria Anzaldúa, Alurista and Ricardo Sánchez, to the mainstream poets Alberto Ríos, Gary Soto, and Lorna Dee Cervantes, to recent emerging voices Blas Manuel de Luna, Sheryl Luna, Brenda Cárdenas and Eduardo C. Corral.
