The framework I invoke in this essay involves the intervention and integration of aesthetic discourses through arts-based inquiry practice and my own critical autoethnographic praxis. Through this intermodal dialogue including visual art, poetry, and poetic and theoretical prose, the essay is an inquiry into feminist arts-based trauma theory and qualitative research methods. I advocate for a need to support, cultivate, and center non-linear and non-speculative discourses as meaningful in and of themselves.
