Making, remembering, remaking : personal meanings in symbolization


Making, remembering, remaking : personal meanings in symbolization

Lok, Linda (1997) Making, remembering, remaking : personal meanings in symbolization. Masters thesis, Concordia University.



My silent voice spirals out of me with your stories I remember they have fused, intertwined and woven themselves into my story My primary goal in the following research is to examine my own sense of ethnic identity, and in the process better understand my own cultural experience through the process of telling my story. This will be done through incorporating two distinct voices, a documentary voice (academic) which is interlaced and interwoven with a personal poetic voice (phenomenological). This thesis will explore the phenomena of my experience as an artist, student, researcher and individual of Chinese descent living and teaching within a Canadian context. This will involve a process of journeying through my own sense of ethnicity to discern and distinguish within and without my cultural repertoire: an understanding of who I am as reflected in the cultural history of the Chinese in Canada, and from within my family and my upbringing. vskip36pt
