 Portrait

Karen Jaime is Assistant Professor of Performing and Media Arts and Latina/o Studies, at Cornell University. Her book project The Queer Loisaida: Language and Performance at the Nuyorican Poets Café, uses hip-hop studies alongside critical race, queer, literary, and performance theories to demonstrate the ways in which historically pejorative identity markers are recuperated and recodified as useful tools in the development of contemporary aesthetic practices.
