Writing on the Wall, "FEARLESS WRITING: NOTES ON CENSORSHIP AND THE ETHICS OF WRITING"

Paula Cucurella  (Creative Writing Department)

FEARLESS WRITING: NOTES ON CENSORSHIP AND THE ETHICS OF WRITING 

In her lecture, Dr. Cucurella will address some of the ideas involved in the problematic relationship that disciplines in general, and literature in particular, have to their own limits. Following the path opened by the work of Jacques Derrida and by examples and testimonies from the work of Nicanor Parra and Gertrude Stein, I will refer to two types of censorship that the logic of disciplinary identity enables and to both the need and the failure of building walls between disciplines and genres.

 

The lecture will be preceded by a presentation by Richie David Marrufo, who will be sharing a few selections of performance poetry that is a take on Modern Bop Prosody which fuses beatbox, vocal looping, spoken word, and rap improvisation. 

 

Richie David Marrufo is the Project Director of The Barbed Wire Open Mic Series (BWOMS), teaches English at El Paso Community College, and provides a variety of creative writing workshops and performances around the city.
