This three-day symposium shines a light on poetry presented in languages that have been historically disrespected.
Scholars Rachel Sutton-Spence and Simona Bertacco will present a framework within which to view the symposium, and four poets will present their work:
Melissa Castillo-Garsow, a Mexican-American poet, novelist, essayist, editor, and linguist
Alysia Harris, an African-American poet, activist, and linguist
Fernanda de Araujo Machado, a deaf Brazilian poet, actor, translator, and linguist
Margaret Noodin, an Anishinaabemowin poet, singer, and linguist
