In an age of distorted perception, language, and critical thinking, how does the socially distanced writer bear witness? In this talk, Nelly Rosario unmasks the empathic writer to reveal a complex anatomy of eye and ear, tongue and heart, mind and pen.
Nelly Rosario is an associate professor in the Latina/o Studies Program at Williams College. She is the author of Song of the Water Saints, winner of a PEN/Open Book Award, and holds an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University. Her fiction and nonfiction work appears in various journals and anthologies, including Critical Diálogos in Latina and Latino Studies (NYU Press) and Teaching Black: Pedagogy, Practice, and Perspectives on Writing (University of Pittsburgh Press), both forthcoming. She is the recipient of a Creative Capital Artist Award in Literature for desveladas, a collaborative project of visual stories about the Americas, and conducts research for the MIT Black History Project. Rosario is currently at work on a speculative novel about community medicine.
