The Office of Research Services is pleased to announce a Roads to Research presentation with Prof. Pamela Richardson on January 20th in the Quarterdeck from 12 to 1 p.m. Her topic is titled Should Royal Roads University have a Poet Laureate? Please review her abstract below.

Roads to Research provides core faculty the opportunity to share their research with staff and other researchers here at Royal Roads. All are welcome to attend the presentations, including the public. Roads to Research presentations are scheduled twice a month until May, 2016. Coffee and cookies will be served. Please bring your lunch. We hope you will join us for Professor Richardson's fascinating presentation on January 20th.

Abstract: What is the place of poetry as a way of knowing in a university? How might we benefit from the particular gifts that poetic vision brings in order to strengthen our teaching and learning community, and our identity as an evolving institution?  Through sharing diverse examples from the interpretive research method known as Poetic Inquiry, Pamela will discuss the philosophical and practical basis of poetry within research and teaching across disciplines. We will engage in some shared poetic readings, play explorations, and reflect on our own interests and possibilities in relation to knowing poetically.
