New Masculinities: Poetry & Conversation with Carlos iro Burgos
Carlos iro Burgos, creator of NewMasculinities.com and author of Spanglibonics and From Boy to IRO, will share new poetry and host a conversation in an effort to deepen our understandings of masculinities.

On April 30, 2017, iro returns to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, where he launched his first poetry collection, From Boy to IRO, in 2011. In 2014, he published Spanglibonics and, the following year, hosted a storytelling event to launch both Spanglibonics and NewMasculinities.com at Under St. Marks Theatre. iro's poetry is often assigned as required reading within college classrooms to explore Puerto Rican history, culture, and masculinity. He has most recently facilitated conversations on masculinities with groups at Dartmouth, Bard, and CUNY to continue exploring the ways masculinities operates in the lives of the participants and himself.
