Poets, Critics, and the Limits of Literary Citizenship by Michael Dowdy

Michael Dowdy is an associate professor of English at the University of South Carolina, where he teaches poetry and Latinx literature. He has written two books of criticism, including Broken Souths: Latina/o Poetic Responses to Neoliberalism and Globalization, which was published by the University of Arizona Press. He is co-editor, with Claudia Rankine, of American Poets in the 21st Century: Poetics of Social Engagement, which was published by Wesleyan University Press in September 2018. His work as a poet includes the book Urbilly, winner of the 2017 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award, and the chapbook The Coriolis Effect. A faculty fellow at both the National Endowment for the Humanities and at the Center for Place, Culture and Politics at the CUNY Graduate Center, Dowdy is originally from Blacksburg, Virginia. He taught at Hunter College/CUNY for a decade before moving to South Carolina.
