Critical Poetic Inquiry

This seminar will explore the use of the Critical Poetic Inquiry (CPI) as a method for transformative change in education research. Commencing with a brief overview of CPI as method, we will explore new and creative ways to engage in the subversion of colonial logic. We will discuss CPI as a tool for doing decoloniality and championing change. Attendees will examine the role of poetry and performance in transforming theoretical ideas from objects of intellectual consideration into means of emotive academic engagement. Centralising decoloniality, this workshop will invite attendees to reconsider and reform their conceptualisation of research by reframing their own scholarship through poetic methods. Attendees will be invited to create poems of their own that creatively communicate the concepts at the centre of their academic work. Our engagement in creative processes seeks to encourage the reimagination of educational research in the hope that decolonial futures can be more than a mere figment of imagination but become a manifest reality.
