A Journey of Writing the Self

Main Article Content

Rosa Hong Chen


In this paper I present a narrative trajectory into self-formation and academic inquiry. Through a series of poems, as both mode of process and inquiry itself, the paper renders a complex of yearning, hopes, predicaments, confusions, fears of failure, and struggles of my innermost being upon the journey of research inquiry. Employing poetic narrative as a method of inquiry, I demonstrate that the process to bring relevant query to bear on poetic narrative suggests a practice of understanding and transforming experience and knowledge, through calling out and responding to the self and the other.
