The Limits of Imaginative Sympathy: Reading and Writing the Incommensurable in Ethnography and Ethnopoetics

posted on 2020-05-18, 23:33 authored by MEGAN JOAN FLEMING
This creative writing PhD combines original poetry with a critical exegesis. It is sited at the intersection of auto-ethnography, family history, and cross-cultural theory traditions, and is intimately informed by research trips spent living in camp and travelling with Warlpiri people on traditional lands.
