International Symposium on Poetic Inquiry
Part 1: Speaking, Wednesday, 26th May
Intersectionality helps us to recognise that people experience the world differently based on social identities— such as gender, sexuality, age, race, class, and disability, among others. For many marginalised people, these mutually reinforcing identities create unique experiences of oppression and discrimination. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a spotlight on these inequalities. Poetry provides a vehicle for expressing and seeing how unfair exclusion and unearned inclusion are embodied, expressed in the silences we inhabit, in the ways we are in(visible) to self, others, community and our environment.
Poetic Inquiry to render voice and visibility: Opening talk by Canadian Dr. Monica Prendergast who played a pivotal role in the establishment of poetic inquiry as a research method. Followed by a discussion moderated by Yvonne Sliep with Duduzile Ndlovu and Heidi van Rooyen (all South African researchers and poetic inquirers).
Poets traverse intersections of silence and (in)visibility: A poetry performance and discussion moderated by Raphael d’Abdon (writer, scholar, editor and translator) with three incredible young South African poets Maneo Mohale, Mjele Msimang and Pieter Odendall.
