Events/Projects

  • Currently, I am recruiting participants for my NEH-funded oral history project, “New Jersey Latino Experiences During the Covid-19 Pandemic,” through my postdoc at Montclair State University. If you know anyone interested in participating in sharing their experiences, please email me directly: riveralopezk@montclair.edu.
  • On February 15, 2022 I conducted an interview/talk for a Centro event, “Cafecito con Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa.” The event recording can be found here.
  • I am also working on my poetry chapbook tentatively titled, Craving Home. My latest poetry publications can be found here.
  • My first play, “Puerto Rican Kitchen,” won 2nd place in the Nuyorican Poets’ Cafe’s 2019 Theatre Festival “Best of the Fest” Contest.
