Short biography
Adeena Karasick is an internationally acclaimed and award winning poet, media-artist and author of seven books of poetry and poetic theory, most recently, This Poem, (Talonbooks, 2012) and Amuse Bouche: Tasty Treats for the Mouth (Talonbooks 2009) as well as 4 videopoems regularly showcased at Film Festivals world wide. All her work is marked with an urban, Jewish, feminist aesthetic that continually challenges linguistic habits and normative modes of meaning production. Engaged with the art of combination and turbulence of thought, it is a testament to the creative and regenerative power of language and its infinite possibilities for pushing meaning to the limits of its semantic boundaries. 
Her writing has been described as "electricity in language" (Nicole Brossard), "plural, cascading, exuberant in its cross-fertilization of punning and knowing, theatre and theory" (Charles Bernstein) "a tour de force of linguistic doublespeak" (Globe and Mail) and "opens up the possibilities of reading" (Vancouver Courier). She is co-founding director  (Minister of Semiotic Turbulence) for KLEZKANADA Poetry Festival and Retreat: Three Millennia of Poetic Subversion and Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University in New York.
