In the process, we label, ascribe, reject, and invent ourselves - and we do this to achieve a sense of belonging. In an attempt to foment the experiences of a community, one must learn to understand alternate voices, that is-the other. By taking this notion into consideration - Who decides these ideas and representations? To contextualize on how identity is constructed, I echo the work of cultural studies scholar, Stuart Hall. His understanding of "identification" entails a "common origin or shared characteristics with another person or group or with an ideal, and with the natural closure of solidarity and allegiance established on this foundation" (1996:2). This workshop will question the social, cultural, political, and historical discomforts that categorize us as a collective. The discussion will be centered on how identities are constructed, historicized, and ultimately stereotyped into the mainstream.
