New Publication by HARC Research Managers Marion Erickson and Lisa Striegler and HARC Research Director Sarah de Leeuw

HARC Research Managers, Marion Erickson and Lisa Striegler, along with Research Director, Sarah de Leeuw, are delighted to announce the  publication in Canadian Theatre Review of their latest work: Tell Us When You’re Uncomfortable: An Anti-Colonial Poetic Script with Mosquito, Lisa, Knowing, Western, Caesarean, Written Word, Marion, Being, Medicine, Sarah, and Other Unruly Characters.

Drawing on unruly, messy, and arts-informed methods emerging in Indigenous, anti-colonial, feminist, and queer research and literatures, this creative article is styled as a ‘poetic dialogue script’ exploring tensions between diverse world-views and ways of being. Authored by Indigenous and white settlers from (so-called) northern British Columbia, the article upends long-standing tendencies in medical and health sciences to pathologize Indigenous peoples, knowledges, and places. In both form (experimental) and conceptual content (anti-colonial and arts-based), the article asks
why some bodies, stories, and geographies attain and accrue power while others are written off and out of, for instance, disciplines like
medicine.
