For the Fall 2021 term, we're offering a mix of virtual and in-person classes. Although we are still primarily virtual, you will find a smaller selection of in-person seminars in the schedule. For more information about the Newberry’s virtual seminars, including a Zoom tutorial, please see our Virtual Seminars FAQ page. Registration opens on September 1st at 9am (Central time). Registration will take place through our online platform, Learning Stream.
In the 1960s, Puerto Rican poets in the U.S. created an important poetry movement called "Nuyorican poetry," which combined the innovative use of jazz, salsa, hip-hop, and spoken word in poems with a commitment to social justice that called out the disenfranchisement of Puerto Ricans in the United States. Come learn about this rich poetic movement and the social and historical context that birthed it in this four-session seminar.
Four sessions. Registration – $195
