Carmen G. Hernández-Ojeda
Carmen G. Hernández-Ojeda is an Independent Scholar whose research interests encompass performance studies, decolonizing methodologies, and critical cultural studies. Dr. Hernández-Ojeda uses performance autoethnography to decolonize academia and to critically examine her experiences of oppression and resistance as an in-betweener: as a queer, cisgender, woman of color, diasporic scholar, and colonized/colonizer subject. Her current projects focus on decolonizing the Canary Islands, her homeland, from a feminist and intersectional perspective. She is one of the co-founders of Canarias Autoetnográfica, a cultural group that promotes autoethnography as a (self)decolonizing tool in the Canary Islands. She has published co-authored essays in the International Review of Qualitative Research, Tabula Rasa, and her solo work in the anthologies Cultura, Homosexualidad y Homofobia (2007), and Feminismos Lesbianos y Queer (2019). She and her co-authors were awarded the 2020 Ellis-Bochner Autoethnography and Personal Narrative Research Award by the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction, affiliate of the National Communication Association.
