Research, extraction, appropriation, and ownership are now at the forefront of current writing practices. These panelists dig into diverse source materials – Barbeau's ethnographies, Western novels, one's own work published years ago, court records of the Air India terrorist trial, poems by Notley and Bishop – to deconstruct their layers. They then build poems that re-imagine power, ownership, intention, and influence. We will discuss relationships between research and invention, share techniques devised for our explorations, and unearth the personal and political visions that compel us to create such art.
