The Conversation Below: A Talk on Poetry & Qualitative Research

What are the places that research sometimes doesn't reach? What are the things people have not yet articulated –– perhaps even to themselves –– that we want to hear and understand and express? What can poetry do? Using poems and reflections, this talk will investigate the places we get stuck, and our frustrations with language and traditional methods of research. And we will look at the potential for poetry to unleash us: to say, hear and share the knowledge we're after. This presentation will be part talk, part poem and part writing so that we may use all channels possible to get to the conversation below.
