Lost Chances of Education Experienced Through Intersectionality by Charlotte Wetton


The piece I would like to submit is a 3-minute performance poem. Through family biography, the poem explores the lost chances of education experienced by working class people through intersectionality.

Written from the perspective of the educated granddaughter of the main character, the poem also interrogates how these stories of lost chances are passed down through families in ways which reinforce intersectional disadvantage.

If wanted, I can also supply discussion questions to be used alongside a performance of the poem. This piece could also fit with the conference theme of ‘autobiographical journeys beyond the divide’.
