Abstract

Abstract In this paper, poetry, as a form of creative analytic practice, is used to articulate my transformation from a constructivist to a critical theorist during my research with Aboriginal women in prison. I was first kicking and screaming against the very thought of working so closely with women in prison, and eventually I was kicking and screaming with incarcerated women and for incarcerated women. Creative analytic practice embraces the complexity of lived experiences and allows for transformational process of self-creation. In my poem, I illustrate my intense, emotional, and life-changing journey as I re-discovered a world based on hierarchical structures of power.
