Seminar on the 3rd November 2021: Voice, Authority and Truth.
Áine McAllister presents a poetic output from a recent poetic inquiry project to frame a discussion on applied ethnopoetic analysis as a means of revealing voice, the ethical considerations of representation and ‘ownership’ and share reflections on the intersection between ethnopoetics as a linguistic analysis technique and the researcher’s poetic representation. She discusses poetry as a viable method of presenting research findings because of its capacity as a form to remain close to or ‘true’ to the voice of research participants and their perspectives.
