RESIST SMALLER, RESIST SLOWER
“Make” Visible your Day-to-Day Resistance Practice
2019



Call for Submissions from International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI):
“Keeping in mind the theme of this year’s ICQI gathering, Qualitative Inquiry and the Politics of Resistance, this year the Autoethnography Special Interest Group (SIG) will focus on the material nature of resistance.  For example, how do objects become politically active and change the world? How do bodies—including those not assumed to have political agency—obstruct, challenge and resist in the realm of politics? How do ways of making, design and technologies of representation help us foreground, interrogate, and imagine a politics of resistance and critical qualitative inquiry?”

Resist Smaller, Resist Slower: “Make” Visible your Day-to-Day Resistance Practice
Yi Zhang and Myriam D. Diatta

How might we work together to make visible the way we acknowledge the wisdom of others in our day to day work? This co-creative workshop uses dream-like writing prompts and playful physical materials for exploring each other’s wisdom about ourselves. We invite you to bring your wonderings, hand-make poetic models together and negotiate the slowness, decision-making, and attentiveness required to make space for others and ourselves.


(This conference workshop invited participants (educators, researchers, scholars) to build or make visible their everyday resistance practice in the classroom, with colleagues, with neighbors. Photographed above is a piece created by two participants.)
