Poetry can be both political and pedagogical. It is utilised in a variety of ways in research to enhance, critique, analyse and express different voices.

Poetry, Method and Education Research brings together international scholars to explore issues as diverse as neoliberalism, culture, decolonising education, health, and teacher identities. A key strength of the book is its attention to poetry as a research method, including discussions of ‘how to’ engage with poetry in research, as well as including a range of research poems. Poetry is thus framed as both method and performance. Authors in this book address a wide variety of questions from different perspectives including: how to use poetry to think about complex issues in education, where poetry belongs in a research project, how to write poetry to generate and analyse ‘data’, how poetry can represent these findings.

This book is an essential resource for students and researchers in education programmes, and those who teach in graduate research methods courses.
