Abstract/Artist's Statement

This ethnography provides vignettes of the navigation of one's mixed Asian American subjectivity relayed to me by the interlocutors. In working with the ethnographic material I gathered from conversations with the interlocutors, I consider Du Boisian concepts of double consciousness in early adolescence and Warner's concept of publics which I apply to the interlocutors' negotiation of their desirability. In working with Michael Warner's publics in this way, I generate a new theoretical framework of public circumscription which follows an investigation of the dialectical relationship between the social landscape and the intimate landscape.
