Abstract:This dissertation is a composition, of stories, many stories, of journeys, of people as they moved from Sudan to Canada, confronting and contesting the dominant refugee discourse(s). Stories that also challenge the form and content of academic writing. Form builds on content, moves away from certain academic conventions, and centers the storytellers themselves, who tell their stories of moving, on their own terms. Storyteller-centric stories decentre the conventional academic author as the author. Speaking dialogically, they engage, as persons, speakers, with one another, with me, and with the readers. About meanings: given, subverted and opened up as possibilities, to think and be different. Not fitting into the framings, which reproduce certain people, as refugees, as passive, victims, voiceless, or even threatening. In dialogical conversations that take place through single-voiced stories of the storytellers; through interviews with storytellers and those who asked questions of my project; and through mixed-voiced first person conversations. Questioning. Performances of authorship, readership, participation, and objectification. Through contestations, conversations. For possibilities. Telling a different story, living a different story.
