A Lecture and Poetry Reading by Manuel Tzoc Bucup (Maya-K’iche’): “Identities: Mobile Bodies”

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:15pm

Lakeview Terrace, USU

Manuel Tzoc Bucup is Maya-K’iche’. In his work Tzoc Bucup challenges canonical conceptions of literature by exploring the limits of the letter while also engaging with the intersections of race/ethnicity, gender and sexuality. His literary works include: GAY(0) (2010), El Ebrio Mar y Yo (2011), El Jardín de los Infantes Locos y la Escafandra de Oro (2013), Los Libros-Objeto Polen (2014) and No recuerdo y/o pronunciamientos del habla tartamuda (2016), among others. At CSUN, his talk will address the intersectional identities that are implicit in his poetic and visual work: indigenous identity, homosexual desire, urban context and poetic thought.
