Submitted by the Event Organizer
In this talk, author Aya de Leon will discuss what happened when she infused an established genre of literature with new feminist identities and politics. She will share her creative path and discuss the concept of creative friction between literary form and content. De Leon will also read passages from her works and poems that advocate for cultural change, showing why new times demand new narratives and new heroes.
De Leon is an associate professor of English at the University of California Berkeley. Her publications include the very successful Justice Hustlers series, as well as Side Chick Nation and her most recent book, A Spy in the Struggle.
