To the Silenced: Poetry as a Means of Performing Identity

Nicol Hall 305, Beirut campus

The Department of Humanities is organizing a poetry workshop entitled “To the Silenced: Poetry as a means of Performing Identity”. 

It is often thought that poetry makes nothing happen because it is isolated from the domains of political power and from the executives who make decisions about the future of societies and nations. The workshop offers a unique space for participants to learn and share in the open ended process of writing and performing poetry as a tool for creative expression. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the efficacy of poetry as public discourse, the function of poets and poetry in society, and the potential for poetry as a tool for personal and collective agency.
