“The House that Hijack Built”: A Lecture by Adeena Karasick, 4/27/06

April 27, 2006IASEvents0

Lecture by Adeena Karasick, Canadian performance poet and feminist Kabbalah scholar currently teaching at St. John’s University in New York. She is the author of six books of multimedia poetry, including “The House that Hijack Built,” “Dyssemia Sleaze,” “MemeWars,” “Genocide,” “The Empress Has No Closure,” and “Arugula Fugues.” As her book titles indicate, her playful approach to the deconstruction of discursive cliches extends to a decentered but powerful feminist presence grounded in the fragmented word. Co-sponsored by Jewish Studies and part of the series New Directions in Jewish Poetics. Cosponsored by The Center for Jewish Study, The English Creative Writing Program, and The Institute for Global Studies.
