Sueyeun-Juliette Lee reading by CalArts Critical Studies published on 2010-10-25T19:04:03Z In her second book-length collection, Underground National (Factory School, 2010), Sueyeun Juliette Lee suggests that suicide, K-pop, tourism, and atomic explosions have emerged as expressions of the forces upholding untenable national imaginations. Go underground with her and enter into a subterranean consideration of how History collides with human memory to generate new, unseen currents for being. Sueyeun Juliette Lee grew up three miles from the CIA. She currently lives in Philadelphia, where she edits Corollary Press, a chapbook series devoted to multi-ethnic experimental writing. In addtion to Underground National, she is also author of That Gorgeous Feeling (Coconut Press). She is interested in how poetics may express transnational cultural currents and the self-conscious rendering of history. Juliette is slowly at work on a project titled Solar Maximum, which explores cryogenics, solar studies, and imaginations of the apocalypse.
