Moving Words

We are excited to announce the launch of an innovative new ebook: Poetry In/As Method offers a series of accessible introductions into the ways that poetry can be used in research. The essays capture how poetry can express insights that are simultaneously urgent, complex, foundational and incomplete.

Poetry, they show us, takes seriously the tentativeness of what we know and how we come to know it; of who we are and who those around us understand us to be. These essays grant us the permission to embrace the open-endedness of our work, and inspire us to find our own ways to do ethical and meaningful research.

In this exciting new e-book, sixteen researchers from across the humanities and social sciences come together to reflect on comparison, and the role that it can play in research and practice today.

Liberating Comparisons starts from the premise that comparative approaches are a potentially powerful means of disrupting and deepening our understandings of the world, pushing us to adapt existing theories and build new ones. In order to realise this potential, however, we need to think critically about the terms of our comparisons and how we pursue them.

Through a series of accessible, engaging chapters, the book’s contributors offer honest reflections and timely insights into the potential of comparison, and its limits. Their discussions drawn on examples from Chile, India, Italy, Nigeria, South Africa, the UK, and the US.

Liberating Comparisons is an invaluable resource for researchers and practitioners.
