Description

At the 40th JMU Research Conference, an event that only top-rated student projects are invited to participate in the conference, I will be presenting my ongoing project titled: "Who Am I?: Poetic Inquiry and Intersectional Identity."

The project itself stemmed from my experiences when being asked the question of "Where are you from?" Which for most is an easy question as they think to where they have lived most of their lives or where they were raised, but for me, it is one that continues to be challenging as I am a third culture individual. For over a year now, I have been trying to answer these questions through writing poems in my cultural communication classes. With these poems, I decided to delve deeper to figure out my answer using poetic inquiry in conjunction with intersectional theory and borderland identity.
