Martín Espada, comparative literature, world literature, decolonialism, radio


In this episode, Harper speaks with AY 2018-2019 host Daimys Garcia about world literature, the decolonial possibilities of radio, and hosting the show. We discuss what world literature is and means as through Broadcasting World Literature until now, the different ways in which Garcia has approached considering literature and world literature, and why radio is a unique space to think about literature. We also consider the resistant capabilities of radio and hear Garcia read "Imagine the Angels of Bread", the title poem of Martín Espada's 1996 book of poems.
