Send this e-mail to Rica and Travis: Rica and Travis, I wish you could have been at the duoethnography panel. The first presentation had some uneasy conversations. The second, Dr. Colomer’s presentation, was cool: A performance with guest actors had some sad moments with death, health issues, and attrition. The next presentation was about miscarriage and grief counseling. I wondered if our paper is frivolous in comparison to the others. I think not. Our episodes of cultural starvation and indifference are there and painful, but our comebacks are so quick (nourishment as resistance), and therefore so is the celebration. Written by Agosto while flying home after presenting at the 2014 International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry.
