I've been slacking a little this week on my assignment (midterm week) but i've realized that I find myself a little lost while researching my topic.
I'm part of the Politics of Language group and my plan is to create a compilation of short videos. Included in these videos will be people reading poems by authors who often cover topics of race and language. The difficulty came when I realized that most poems I am finding don't cover language at all and for the most part are about identity (and I know there is a separate group for that already). I just want to avoid delving into a topic that is separate from my own so I don't end up losing my way. I hope that when I dive further into my research it is easier to find poets that can help with my topic.
If anyone knows of any specific poems or even poets that may be able to help me, feel free to send a link through twitter! Much appreciated
