Looking for poems about class, poverty, and/or resistance


Professor Kendra Coulter, looking for poetic insights into class, poverty, and resistance.

Dr Kendra Coulter is a labour studies professor and she's on a mission to find poems that will help her students at Canada's Brock University understand the issues of class, poverty, and resistance.

Her current research focuses on retail work and retail workers, but with poems she hopes to give her students added insights in her new summer course "Class and Culture".

Earlier this year Professor Coulter had used George Orwell's Animal Farm and Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy in her teaching.

Now she's made a call out on the Internet on Twitter and Facebook for poetry suggestions.

RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda talked to Professor Coulter about the poems she's looking for.
