Description/Abstract

Naming can alternatively be a definition of identity or a source of stigma. Un-naming can alter a story and serve to unhinge fixed definitions, initiating a democratic discourse that finds its own way of escaping the thrall of hegemony and dominating canons. Can qualitative research serve to un-name axiomatic frameworks of identity? This paper is written to follow up to Messing Around With Identity Constructs (Qualitative Inquiry, Volume 10, Number 4, pp. 548-557) and continues the author’s effort to establish the efficacy of a poststructural and poetic aesthetic in research writing.
