Stranger in a Strange Land: A Personal Journey through Myth, Stereotype, and Representation

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



Abstract:

Cultural stories that incorporate myth, religion, and visual culture represent an attempt to link human knowledge in order to relay the experiences from the perspective of the storytellers in relation to larger cultural experiences. This autoethnography examines shifting negotiations of language, identity, gender and sexuality among and the relationship of collective fictions within U.S. Latino/a identity that regulate performances of gender, sexuality and cultural identity. Through a personal narrative that incorporates discourses on hybridity, the researcher investigates the manifestation of resistance, sublimation and acculturation among his perceived cultural group as well as practices that sustain inequities among race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. The researcher constructs stories of self through post-Chicano discourses to illustrate how identity is influenced by the visual world, and how vision and language are connected to cultural understanding that eventually becomes a way of conveying a personal truth or perspective.
