"The genealogy I have created for myself here [in the US] is partial, interested and deliberate. It is genealogy that underlies my self-identification as an educator involved in a pedagogy of liberation. Of course, my history and experiences are far messier and not at all as linear as this narrative makes them sound. But then the very process of constructing a narrative for oneself--of telling a story--imposes a certain linearity and coherence. But this is the lesson, perhaps, especially for us immigrants and migrants: i.e., that home, community, and identity all fall somewhere between the histories and circumstances we inherit and the political choices we make through alliances, solidarities and friendships."--Chandra Talpade Mohanty
