How do you feel about your name?
Names and how we feel about them are linked to our sense of self-identity. For people with non-Western names in Western English-speaking contexts, this relationship can be complicated. My Name Is explores verbatim narratives from research participants who have non-Western names, examining how individuals view their relationships with their names, how names impact self-identity, and how names can correlate to the pressure to conform with westernized English norms.
An extension of the My Name Is® research project and award-winning documentary, this book shares valuable lived experience as well as looking at the importance of getting names right.
