Positionality, location, subjectivity

I’m already deep into my first workshop (more on that in my next post), but I’m thinking about how to offer something as a novice blogger. My perspective on everything I’m going to experience today comes from a complex of related ways-of-being-in-the-world. I’m a middle-aged, Asian American, multiethnic, straight, nerdy/academic, overly earnest, idealistic-but-eternally-dissatisfied woman. I believe in the power of performance to change the terms. I spend much of my time on a university campus where I’ve come to assume the right to free thinking and free speech but am frequently exhausted by the multitudinous ways that straight White masculinist conventions define my days.

So… I love this unconference gathering already! This is great! Let’s see what happens today!
