In writing the award winning Tell: Poems for a Girlhood, poet Soraya Peerbaye was deeply influenced by legal materials from the trial of the murderers of Reena Virk and the scholarship of Dr. Sheila Batacharya on reading the case through the lenses of race, crime and law. Join us to hear Soraya Peerbaye and Sheila Batacharya in discussion with Osgoode Professor Kate Sutherland about the story of Reena Virk, the process by which legal materials can be turned into poetry, and the power and potential of this kind of work.
