On Wednesday, October 13, the Lilian R. Furst Forum in Comparative Literature Speaker Series will welcome their first speaker of the year, emilio Taiveaho Peláez, for their presentation, “Poetry & The Mushrooms of Language” at 6:00pm EST.

In their presentation, emilio will explore the quiet radicalism of mushroom blooms, poetry’s rifeness with toxins, and the ways that these issues help us exercise a horizontal learning process and avoid perpetuating coloniality’s the unequal power relations.

emilio (they/them) is a Ph.D. student in the Department of English and Comparative Literature. Their work engages the intersection of aesthetic experience and political discipline, blending critical, creative, and archival inquiry to explore subterranean philosophical and literary histories across the Américas.
