“Miles of Strangeness“
“What is it that makes both talks and silences stained with shame? Sometimes the mind freezes and the heart goes on fasting: name, nation, identity, citizenship disappear. With every step, the world comes to the walker, and all around, on the immense screen of life, every event speaks." In the dense jungle of events, doings, and happenings, history comes in interrelated fragments to be sniffed out, tracked, swallowed, held on, or vomited while walking for survival. The spirit of the walk leads the writer-researcher to a whole tradition of independent walkers in ancient Asia, at the same time as it provides her with a link to struggles around the world, more specifically to the transnational struggles of women in the U.S., Argentina, Mexico, and China.
Trinh T. Minh-ha is an independent filmmaker, writer, composer and feminist, post-colonial theorist. Her work, which includes numerous books, films and art installations, has received world-wide acclaim and prestigious awards. Before joining the University of California (Berkeley) as Professor of Gender & Women's Studies and of Rhetoric (Film), she taught at universities in Dakar, Tokyo and the US such as Cornell and Harvard. Her most recent book is Elsewhere, Within Here. Immigration, Refugeeism and The Boundary Event (2010) and a classic book of hers, Woman, Native, Other has just been published in German translation "Postkolonialität und Feminismus schreiben" (Turia + Kant, 2010).
