“After Lives, After Palimpsests: Aimé Césaire & Claudia Rankine’s (Caribbean) ‘American Lyrics’ “

My project seeks to frame certain forms of poetry as attempts at experimental, non-linear historiography, examining the ways in which lyric and documentary impulses—so often pitted against one another critically—are intertwined from the inception of documentary poetics, an
emerging multi-genre’d genre I read as quintessentially “American”: North, South, and Central.
