Hurricanes as a Call to Remember

Hurricanes as a Call to Remember Growing up in Florida as a queer subject, I bounced from disaster to disaster. The annual hurricane season reminds me of this vulnerability, despite my racial and class privilege to background my precarity. Through reflection, the hurricane brings me home. In this autoethnography of queer survival, I approach identity disclosure as a process of negotiation and regulation. With ecological and queer temporalities, I explore the elemental interconnections of identity, space, and time. Further, the concept of queer ecological temporality expands the present moment to encompass disasters both past and future in an era of political and climate uncertainty. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Departures in Critical Qualitative Research University of California Press

Abstract

Growing up in Florida as a queer subject, I bounced from disaster to disaster. The annual hurricane season reminds me of this vulnerability, despite my racial and class privilege to background my precarity. Through reflection, the hurricane brings me home. In this autoethnography of queer survival, I approach identity disclosure as a process of negotiation and regulation. With ecological and queer temporalities, I explore the elemental interconnections of identity, space, and time. Further, the concept of queer ecological temporality expands the present moment to encompass disasters both past and future in an era of political and climate uncertainty.
