Writing methods, inquiries and search begin by looking for what’s missing, or what seems missing in blank spaces, races and places.  These authors from the IBS (In-Between Spaces) enter through the faint openings into the waiting agape.


What comes out of these openings shape, re-shape, and reconfigure (illuminate) concepts of race, culture, nation, and identity as each conflate, subsume, extends, and exceeds on, to and around one another.  Race, for example, is constituted in the making of culture, identity and nation, yet, race, again for example, is animated to unmake its constitution in remaking, revisiting and reconsidering what constitutes culture, identity and nation.  In many ways, these texts do the work of remaking, revisiting and reconsidering of race in its precarious relationship between real, imagined, and otherwise.
