Positionality

Photo Caption: PositionalityNouf Alhamdan: In this piece, I used text written by me to form a self portrait. The process of writing this text titled " where am I? " was one of the most emotional moments in my life. I recalled a lot of valuable memories, and it took me a lot of effort to decide what parts should I reveal in this story and what parts should remain private. Although the story was short, and simple, it had a huge impact on me. Being given the privilege to unclutter my thoughts by writing was a way that helped me overcome some communication issues, not only with people in the United States but with family and friends back home as well. This text turned out to be a metaphor that opened up new possibilities in talking about the issues that I am interested in, such as positionality, culture, gender, and globalization. And how those topics unfold other specific issues including but not limited to race and stereotype.
