(Mis)recognition: Language and the Struggle for Identity
As humans, we all experience the fundamental need to belong. Often, this sense of belonging is inherited and nurtured by our families and their histories, the languages we speak and the cultures we adhere to; and it is in our experiences and engagement with these aspects of ourselves that our identities are formed, contested, negotiated and subsequently reformed. What follows is a brief autobiographical account that explores my relationship with learning and unlearning languages at different points in my life and how these processes shaped an intrinsic understanding of myself and the world.
