Vidhu Aggarwal

Rollins College
Associate Professor
United States
Vidhu Aggarwal’s poetry and multimedia practices engage with world-building, video, and comic book media, and draw from mythic schemas from contemporary science, popular culture, and ancient texts. Her poetry book The Trouble with Humpadori (2016) imagines a cosmic mythological space for marginalized transnational subjects. Poems from Humpadori were listed as the top 25 from Boston Review in 2016 and appeared on Sundress Publications Best Poetry of 2016 list. Avatara, a chapbook from Portable @ Yo-Yo Labs Press, is situated in a post-apocalyptic gaming world where A.I.’s play at being gods. A Djerassi resident and Kundiman fellow, she teaches poetry and postcolonial/transnational studies at Rollins College.
