Marginalized among the Marginal: Reflections from Collapsing Field Experiences

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since April 2008, I have been in the field exploring two marginal public culture phenomena, amateur bracket racing and mixed martial arts. These experiences, while vastly different in terms of communication and overall cultural pattens, have become blurred in terms of my own role as participant-observer. As a woman, I feel marginalized in the both these marginal cultures. Starting with my entrance into the field through male informants and reflecting on issues of corporeality, I assert that my sex, gender, education, and stature create unique barriers for entrance, participation, and prolonged engagement in these two fields. While my own status imposes itself on the field, the field has also challenged my notion of self. The result of my reflections from recent field experiences is a unique understanding of self, and a blurring of two seemingly different phenomena and contexts.
