Adeena Karasick

Adeena Karasick is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning poet, media artist, and author of seven books of poetry and poetic theory. The New York resident and St. John’s University professor has also made four videopoems, including the viral success "I Got a Crush on Osama".  All her work is rooted in an urban, Jewish, feminist aesthetic that continually challenges linguistic habits and the ways that meaning is produced. Karasick’s provocative, philosophically complex wordplay has created havoc for over 20 years.
