Through interrogation using shared autobiographical writings, juxtaposed with hegemonic societal narratives, the authors move between the past and the present using duoethnography to interrogate grand historical narratives from a critical feminist perspective.

Their exploration of various scripto-visual texts and the ways in which they were represented in the exhibition illuminated for the authors the ways in which representation shapes how and what is learned.

Abstract

Through interrogation using shared autobiographical writings, juxtaposed with hegemonic societal narratives, the authors move between the past and the present using duoethnography to interrogate grand historical narratives from a critical feminist perspective. They revisit an exhibition designed to highlight historical events from 50 years ago, considering ways in which women are represented, reacting to the historical purported objective tone used to provide background about the events that evoke neither reflection or action. They uncover gaps between the stories told in the exhibition, between their memories and exhibition representations, and also generational gaps in understanding and experience. Their exploration of various scripto-visual texts and the ways in which they were represented in the exhibition illuminated for the authors the ways in which representation shapes how and what is learned.
