Poetry & Resistance Workshop

Poetry & Resistance Workshop

Details

Leeds Lit Fest presents

This workshop, run by Say It With Your Chest, will explore how poets and poetics have been a source of resistance and an act of defiance in the face of colonialism and imperialism, looking at the work of, in particular, Assia Djebar and Beth Brant.

Many poets have created a voice for diasporas through which ethical communities can engage with and articulate the shared burdens of history that people of colour worldwide carry such as Aime Cesaire, Cecilia Vicuna, Beth Brant, Gabriel Okara, Assia Djebar and Faiz Ahmad Faiz, all pictured.
