Abstract

In this autoethnographic exploration, I question the notion of academic home. I argue that as postcolonial academic bodies who are educated in the Western societies, our voices are often questioned or silenced, and our bodies and writing are often surveilled. Hence, the idea of home and belonging is often questioned. I offer decolonizing autoethnography as both a method and academic space to speak from and decolonize the ways in which our diasporic and immigrant bodies can challenge the power structures around us.
