Re-voicing words: Embodying voices through poetry



This co-produced research brings work on the philosophy of voice to the poetry community through collaboration with the organisation Poet in the City.

What happens when poetry is performed by different voices – how does this affect the performance space and reception of the poem? How might re-voicing poetry bring communities together? What are the ethical and political implications of re-voicing the words of a poem?

To investigate these themes, we are designing and delivering a series of workshops for the poetry community focusing on voice, embodiment and performance space for its potential to empower those who have been marginalised in society.

The project is led by Dr Karen Simecek from the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, and is funded through the Connecting Cultures GRP's ‘Connecting cultures through co-production’ call
