Faculty Feature: Tina Escaja

How has the digital age transformed the meaning of connection? That's one of the questions professor of Spanish and artist Tina Escaja explores with her work, challenging the boundaries that divide technology and humanity.

Here, Escaja discusses a recent project: writing poetry from the point of view of robots, called “Robopoem@s.” Hear the Robopoem@s and experience more of Escaja's digital art

Escaja also serves as the director of gender, sexuality and women’s studies at UVM. In 2017, her book "Manual Destructivista/ Destructivist Manual" was named among the 10 best bilingual poetry books by Latino Book Review
