Alana de Hinojosa


Raised in Davis, California, Alana de Hinojosa earned a B.A. from Hampshire College and is currently a doctoral student at UCLA’s César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o Studies. As a poet pursuing a cultural studies dissertation concerned with histories of migration, displacement, and erasure, her methodology considers how various voices, texts, and materials, across form, genre, and language, (re)imagine alternative poetic and more just geographies. 

Prayer after demolition in an unrecognized village

if putting two stones together is illegal,
make me a stone. 

& let us soar with the gale
together, brother, 

& kiss
over their destruction.
