dc.description.abstractThis creative project, a collection of personal essays, involves discovering the importance of an intersectional perspective to show how privilege is nuanced through lived experience. The central idea, an investigation of privilege and intersectionality, is linked to an exploration of what I refer to as the mundane: everyday aspects of our lives—laundry, exercise, driving to the store—that are so tedious and generic, and perhaps seemingly unworthy of a second look. The goal is to make privilege a more accessible concept to a wide audience by depicting the tangled nature of race, class, and gender through an artful examination of everyday experiences, emotions, and self-doubt. By writing about my own experiences and unconscious biases, I establish a degree of vulnerability that invites people to confront their own conceptions of privilege and to show that we can never truly separate and define aspects of privilege.en_US
