|Title||Critical engagement [electronic resource] : [an autoethnography on embodiment, race, privilege, and otherness] /|
|Abstract||This Autoethnography examines the following questions: Given that race is a social construct and the embodiment of race makes (has the potential to make) certain experiences more or less likely, how can I engage to rethink/ complicate identity, race, experiences, privilege, and voice? How does it feel to navigate this space as a young, white, female? What does it mean to negotiate this space? In order to better understand my concept of personal space I use the hula-hoop as a metaphor to describe what the word "space" means to me. "I am like a hula-hoop suspended and spinning in air."¿ I am not sure what is at the core of my thinking and what is outside. The ideas move in and out as they please and also as I let them. The format of this proposal takes on a thematic structure with autoethnographic work and reflection woven into each theme. The themes of this thesis are Foundation, Standards, Tensions, Negotiations, and Hauntings.|
