Words in Your Face traces the rich history of slam poetry through the lens of the New York City scene that pioneered it. Author Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz situates New York slam poetry in the history of oral tradition in poetry throughout history and around the world, with particular attention to the three major 20th century arts movements that helped set the stage for it: the Harlem Renaissance, the Beats, and hip hop. Aptowicz explores the birth of slam at the Nuyorican Poets’ Café and the genre’s explosive growth as the media responded with events like Lollapalooza and MTV’s Unplugged. The book expands the canvas by examining the connections between academia and slammers, especially the poets of color, the youth slammers, and the burgeoning hip hop poetry scene. Interviews with key players like Chicago’s Marc Smith and San Francisco’s Gary Mex Glazner help tell this fascinating story from the inside.

Minu Hedayati-Aliabadi zeigt anhand ihrer deutsch–US-amerikanischen Studie, dass der Begriff Slam Poetry in erster Linie als Bedeutungsträger für performative, zeitgenössische und interaktive Literatur verwendet wird, während die reale Ausprägung bei Veranstaltungen weniger interaktiv ist. Sie setzt sich in Ihrer Arbeit mit den Ansichten und Handlungsweisen der beteiligten Akteure auseinander und untersucht das in 1986 in Chicago entstandene Veranstaltungsformat Poetry Slam. 1989 wurde dieses durch die Slam-Szene in New York City international bekannt und kann aufgrund der Ergebnisse der Studie in Deutschland heute als wenig elitäres, nicht kommerzielles, geplantes und kulturelles Event klassifiziert werden, das hauptsächlich von jungen Erwachsenen aus dem Bildungsbürgertum besucht wird.

Interprets popular art forms as exhibiting core anarchist values and presaging a more democratic world. Situated at the intersection of anarchist and democratic theory, Anarchism and Art focuses on four popular art forms—DIY (Do It Yourself) punk music, poetry slam, graffiti and street art, and flash mobs—found in the cracks between dominant political, economic, and cultural institutions and on the margins of mainstream neoliberal society. Mark Mattern interprets these popular art forms in terms of core anarchist values of autonomy, equality, decentralized and horizontal forms of power, and direct action by common people, who refuse the terms offered them by neoliberalism while creating practical alternatives. As exemplars of central anarchist principles and commitments, such forms of popular art, he argues, prefigure deeper forms of democracy than those experienced by most people in today’s liberal democracies. That is, they contain hints of future, more democratic possibilities, while modeling in the present the characteristics of those more democratic possibilities. Providing concrete evidence that progressive change is both desirable and possible, they also point the way forward.

In her second collection of poetry, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz serves up a hilarious and uncompromising autobiographical bender about her first job out of college: writing and editing for porn. Whether denouncing the corporate world ("To Whom It May Concern") before lustily joining it ("New Millennial Bad Ass"), or sweetly celebrating love in the face of smut ("Let's Make Out!"), Aptowicz dramatizes the hopes, humor and ambitions of a young poet’s first steps into a very surreal “real world.”

In her third collection of poetry, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz celebrates the ups and downs of being a poet with a day job. Whether exulting the mundaneness of office life ("Rules of Slack"), musing about hidden perks of college poetry gigs ("Ode to College Cafeterias") or hilariously defending the use of humor in poetry ("To the Guy Who Said that Funny Poetry Ain't Poetry"), this book continues Aptowicz's tradition of witty, honest and idiosyncratic work. her previous Write Bloody book, Everything is Everything, 978-0-9842515 was reviewed widely

In her fourth collection of poetry, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz uses her youth as muse. Whether ruminating on the trials and tribulations of life in the single digits ("My Elementary School Confessions"), exposing her unapologetic high school geekiness ("The Secret Language of Nerds") and exalting all the melodramatic yet sincere love verses she ultimately penned in vain ("On Reading Old Unrequited Love Poems"), this plump collection commiserates and celebrates all the wonder, terror, banality and comedy that is the long journey to adulthood. her previous Write Bloody book, Everything is Everything, 978-0-9842515 was reviewed widely

In her celebrated debut volume, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz tackles, among other idiosyncratic topics, love ("Science"), heartbreak ("Lit"), and thieving suburban punks ("Ode to the Person Who Stole My Family's Lawn Gnome"). Quirky and funny with a subtext of social commentary, Aptowicz's writing lets the reader ride shotgun in a hilarious sprawling road trip through America's youth culture.
