Contemporary Mexican cultural production is strongly influenced by the extreme violence that has engulfed the country in recent years. A literary phenomenon that emerged within this context is the production of political poetry written by women that combines commemoration with mobilization. This project studies how the work of three female poets generates and transmits affect in order to mediate memories of violence and engage an audience, and how these poems have been adapted by other artists and/or activist.
