Deborah BarndtLa poeta, la política and la pensadora
In 1976, when I was doing doctoral research on Paulo Freire’s  educational approach to literacy in Lima, Peru, I found myself struggling with three parts of myself in conflict with each other. In Spanish, I called these, la poeta (the poet or artist), la política (the political person or activist) and la pensadora (the thinker). I translated them in English as the artist, the activist, and the academic. Ultimately, I decided that all were critical to me, and they would have to live in creative tension and/or feed each other. I have organized my website around these categories, although it is clear that the lines between them are very blurred, and they often overlap.
