Intersectional Essay Proposal

khinchey's picture

I think I would like to do an ethnographic account of the die-in/march happening at Bryn Mawr's campus and on the Main Line on Monday versus the marches happening in Philadelphia. I will be taking notes, pictures, and videos to document this experience. I believe that I could do a close reading of how the Main Line residents react, who the march is made up of, how accessible/inaccessible these protests are. I would like to look at how these experiences affect the construction of students at Bryn Mawr's identities (both students of color and white students) I think that this semester campus environment has shaped how many students interact in the contact zones of our classrooms and living environments. I will also interview students who particpated and who organized it to get their perspective on how education, class, and race intersect.
