About the Session

Arts-Based Research has been gaining traction in the social sciences, specifically regarding the use of personal poetry as a means of recording the stories of the marginalized, as well as the use of ethnographic poetry as a means of inscribing the cultural record. This session will explore the ways in which poetry can simultaneously act as cultural document and vehicle for social transformation. Examples from Poetry of Resistance: Voices for Social Justice (University of Arizona Press, 2016) will be read and discussed as a possible benchmark for all poetic endeavors in this age.
