XII International Transformative Learning Network Conference, Engaging at the Intersections:
Where are you from?” “Where are you really from?” “What is your background?” “What is your story?” I call this Identity Interrogation (II), the commonplace experience for me, a Black African woman, of being asked biographical questions by strangers. This paper examines through analytic autoethnography, the meta-question: At the intersection of worlds of difference colliding, what are the transformative possibilities? I make propositions, including that the experience of II can be shifted through Relational Connection.
