Autoethnography: Preserving the History of the Resilient U.S.-Mexico Border Peoples

Abstract

When deconstructing our surrounding environments to bridge diversity in a constantly shape- shifting world where capital interests and global perspectives are at the forefront and are often at odds with social interests, autoethnography can be a tool that provides both agency and voice to its users. Through these personal experiences, an autoethnographer can critique practices, policies, and cultural constructions that shape a population’s understanding of the surrounding world. Thus, the methodology opens a wider lens on the world, avoiding the constraints of what constitutes meaningful research while providing a singular perspective in a collective understanding of culture, place, and identity.
