Social structure, Oppression (Psychology)
Using memoir, this piece explores the social location of the author throughout her life. By examining memory, writing in the past tense and providing creative observations and commentary on experience, the author is able to offer perspective on various aspects of privilege, oppression and the intersections therein. The creative style also attempts to validate and legitimize personal experience as research in a deconstructed, approachable manner to increase public interest and awareness of personal social location.
