Lines of Inquiry: Indigenous Poetry
How does the flexible form of poetry make it uniquely placed to vivify Indigenous storylines, languages and connections to Country while grappling with the ongoing legacy of Australia’s brutal colonisation? Prominent Aboriginal researcher and writer Professor Marcia Langton speaks with a panel of our most exciting poets about how their work and the medium at large bring fresh perspective to our past, present and future. Sharing their insights are proud Noongar author of Lies, Damned Lies Claire G Coleman; Windham-Campbell Prize–winning Yankunytjatjara poet Ali Cobby Eckermann; and award-winning Munanjali poet Samuel Wagan Watson.
