Adeena Karasick is a poet, cultural theorist, media artist and the critically acclaimed author of seven books of poetry and poetic theory, most recently, This Poem (Talonbooks 2012). Writing at the intersection of Conceptualism and neo-Fluxus performatics, her urban, Jewish, feminist aesthetic mashups have been described as “electricity in language” (Brossard) and noted for its “cross-fertilization of punning and knowing, theatre and theory” (Bernstein), “a twined virtuosity of mind and ear which leaves the reader deliciously lost in Karasick’s signature “syllabic labyrinth” (Dworkin). She is currently Professor of Pop Culture and Media Theory at Fordham University in New York, and winner of the Book Expo America Award.
