2020

"In [world described by this poem], safety no longer corresponds to zoning and territorializing land as livable or not based on its terrestrial relation to dominant conceptions of humanness; water is crucial in this inherently queer and cross-border diasporic practice for literal living and figurative “mattering.”

Honolulu, HI
NHA 2020

– from research talk, “Community-Based Research Methods on Social Media: Bridging Poetry, Activism, and Scholarship through Digital Platforms,"

"...despite 1980’s cultural studies interventions that non-scholarly texts are enacted modes of knowledge production...research methods uphold the textual monograph as scholarly success. Yet, multimodal community knowledge is seeping into and out  of institutionalized and print-based walls using open access platforms. Here, coalitions meaningfully emerge."

Chicago, IL
ACLA2020

"[Kapil] instead puts forward a material and historically constructed space, replete with the violent contradiction that twins racialization and pathologization --- especially when the diasporic subject and language would undercut nationalist borderlands."

Chicago, IL
MLA 2019

"What if, for instance, “dysfunction” and “dysfluency” open to spaces of affirmative vocabularies for archiving not just pain, but otherwise healing?"

Atlanta, GA
ASA 2018

"we contend that [activist poetics and pedagogy] offer new strategies for imagining how a work implicates its audiences, or inaugurates new ones. In particular, they explore the ways that performance and writing extend one another’s inquiries, rather than being framed as separate strategies, modes, and epistemologies."

San Diego, CA
ASTR 2018

"In other words, what celebrations of diasporic performance and the potential inherent to ongoing cellular – both biologically and technologically – connected living surface in the improvisational space of LaWhoreVagistan’s singular performance?" 

Atlanta, GA
NWSA
2018

"If, as queer ecocritic Sarah Ensor asks, queer activism has been mobilized precisely in the face of death...how can it also be recruited to combat the vitalist racial biopolitical and necropolitical dimensions of environmentalist “crisis” thinking? I add onto Ensor's analysis here the question of how race both complicates and builds onto this framework. "

Los Angeles, CA
ACLA2018

"Instead of reifying a cultural category, such as the human owning water and unequally distributing it, Lemonade creates antiracist posthuman vitalities that take back the cultural (music) and literal (water) terms for matter itself."

ASLE2017

"The language of poetry traverses the so-called immaterial/material divide to work with the space on a page and the body’s relationship to words themselves, offering experiences of emotion and physicality that cannot be reduced to a narrative trajectory, singular and self-possessed human, and so forth."

Detroit, MI
