Advanced Hybrid Workshop with Chris Campanioni via Zoom
May 9 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$124
Objective: To straddle the line between poetry & prose, essay & narrative, list & analysis. I’d like to think of the hybrid form as a map, an itinerary, an index, a choreographed movement that allows one to move between text & context, past & present, meaning & making—& moreover, the moment of making. On the fly. In this one-day workshop, we’ll learn to embody the liminal hybrid form by embracing our own liminal, intertextual, fluid, often performative, identities. Let’s locate ourselves on this map & re-present our way of seeing; our way of being in the world. This class is intended to build on the previous classes that Chris taught on hybrid at the Center but newcomers are welcome.
Chris Campanioni was born in Manhattan in 1985. He is the son of immigrants from Cuba and Poland, a writer, teacher, and the editor of PANK, Tupelo Quarterly, and At Large Magazine. Campanioni’s debut novel, Going Down, was selected as Best First Book at the International Latino Book Awards in 2014. His poem “Transport (after ‘When Ecstasy is Inconvenient’)” was a finalist for the Zócalo Public Square Poetry Prize in 2015, awarded annually to the U.S. poet whose poem best evokes a connection to place. He was awarded an Academy of American Poets College Prize in 2013 for selected poetry and his hybrid piece This body’s long (& I’m still loading) was adapted as an official selection of the Canadian International Film Festival in 2017. In 2019, he was awarded a CHCI-Mellon Global Humanities Institute fellowship to join the Transnational Joint Research Center for Migration, Logistics, and Cultural Intervention.
His essays, poetry, and fiction have been translated into Spanish and Portuguese, appearing in the Journal of Cinema and Media Studies, [email protected], the Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics, Hayden’s Ferry Review, DIAGRAM, Poetry International, M/C: Media & Culture, Prelude, RHINO, Ambit, Gorse, and several other journals and anthologies, including Revisiting the Elegy in the Black Lives Matter Era (Routledge, 2019), Manticore: Hybrid Writing from Hybrid Identities (Sundress, 2019), No Tender Fences (2019), an anthology of immigrant & first-generation American poetry to benefit RAICES-TEXAS, and Dostoyevsky Wannabe’s Brooklyn anthology.
