Edgar Paiewonsky-Conde gave a paper on “The Poetics of Dismemberment in Alexis Gomez Rosa's Self-Service Poems,” in the 12th annual Conference on Afro-Hispanic Literature and Culture, held last December 17-19 at the University of Alcala de Henares (Spain). This essay will be published in a forthcoming issue of Diaspora (Southern Arkansas University). A selection of Paiewonsky-Conde's poetry in English is due this month in a multicultural anthology of five poets, Corresponding Voices, a publication of Point of Contact Productions, Syracuse University. On April 25, Paiewonsky-Conde will participate in a panel discussion on “America as Fusion: Walt Whitman and Latin American Writing,” as part of a five-part series on Whitman and Latin America organized by The Americas Society (NYC), which will also include Robert Bly, Galway Kinnell, Alberto Blanco, Enrico Mario Santi and Geman Jaramillo. Paiewonsky-Conde has also been invited to participate in the International Book Fair that will be held April 26 through May 3 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He will deliver a paper titled “Spaces of Synchronic Articulation in Don Quijote and One Hundred Years of Solitude,” and will give a reading of his poetry.
