Cristina Correa is interested in the creative-critical literary intersections between environmental humanities, diaspora studies, Latine studies, and Caribbean studies. Her work as a poet and critic orbits Latine and Caribbean diasporic lenses in conversation with Black feminist thought and poetics. A central inquiry her work considers is how ecogrief in Latine and Caribbean poetry might open pathways to hope and social transformation. Her work examines Latine and Caribbean poetics, from diaspora to diaspora, as a site where transformation is necessarily engaged by the interstitial space of witnessing and being subjected to a history and ecology of devastation from which reinvention is uniquely and bewilderingly possible. As an interdisciplinary thinker and creator, she is exploring visual studies, particularly ekphrasis in combination with elegy and ecocriticism, as a dynamic resource for creative-critical survey and intervention via Latine and Caribbean arts.
