In the Yellow Margins: A Tribute for Professor Mosoff

  • Jonas-Sébastien Beaudry D.Phil., Assistant Professor, McGill University

Abstract

This creative work begins with a poem written to commemorate Professor Judith Mosoff, a colleague who passed away on December 20, 2015. Professor Mosoff’s work in disability law influenced both activists and researchers, and this loss has impoverished the Canadian disability community. The poem is followed by an essay that situates it and reflects on the possibility of knowing and relating to someone affectively through poetic imagination, as well as on the role that poetry can play in sharing mourning and fostering community.
