Gloria Anzaldúa referred to her groundbreaking book Borderlands as her autohistoria-teoria, an epistemological autobiography. She conceived of the liminal space, El Mundo Zurdo, where becoming and thinking converge for radical acts of decolonization, and posited the possibility that writing is the praxis where activism, aesthetics, and scholarship converge. In this workshop we'll consider writing at the intersection of the aesthetic and the intellectual that leads to transformation. We'll discover how these works of absolute receptivity act as liberatory practices for their authors and also engage with these practices in our own work. Accepted participants will submit up to 2 poems by May 12.
