Yanko Gonzalez is a Chilean poet and Professor of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Universidad Austral de Chile. His books of poetry include Metales Pesados (1998), Alto Volta (2007), and Elabuga (2011). His last book, Elabuga, containing just fourteen poems, was published as a large format book, and the end papers contain obituaries of its author, written by poet friends, against the backdrop of a grey concrete wall. His poetry combines ethnographic work and critical (self)reflections on the practice of both poetry and anthropology. His poems have been translated into French, English, and German.
