Poetics and Power

How can poetics be a mode to resist, subvert and remake authoritative narratives? How can the ambiguities of poetic language offer a counter-narrative to dominant ways of knowing and being in the world? A discussion on the relationship between poetry, storytelling, activism and resistance.

With Evelyn Araluen, Natalie Harkin, Ellen O’Brien and Ellen van Neerven
