Call Me By My Other Name: A Genderqueer, Hard-of-Hearing ex-CODA’s look at ASL poetry, Trans-Embodiment, and Implant Poetics
What do you call poetry written in both English and ASL? What happens to Deaf heritage when its point of origin disappears? Using the premise of Implant Poetics—a poetics of betweenity and borderland identity that allows for culturally responsible, mixed-ability and mixed-modal linguistic approaches to ASL poetics—poet and scholar Meg Day talks about the gendered nature of ASL poetry; the challenges of merging page and stage; and the complexities of living with a name sign no one uses anymore.
