The workshop will explore some of the ways in which poets have used poetics to challenge oppression. With a focus on anti-colonial and decolonial poetry, we discuss the role of radical, imaginative art in shaping and upholding community ethics during times of instability. For this workshop, we will be looking at poems by Cecilia Vicuña and Niyi Osundare.
