About

Version 2

I write lyricliterary, and review essays, poems, poem things, and things about poems, and various scholarly things, and I teach Latinx literature and the poetry of the Americas, once at Hunter College, then at the University of South Carolina, and, starting in Fall 2022, at Villanova University. I have been a faculty fellow at the Center for Place Culture and Politics and at the National Endowment for the Humanities, and my books include UrbillyBroken Souths, and, as coeditor with Claudia Rankine, Poetics of Social Engagement.
