dc.description.abstract This thesis aims to critique racial identity literature and challenge normative racial constructs that omit Multiracial identity experiences. It does this by examining monoracial and Multiracial identity development research and by presenting the author's autohistoria/autoethnography and artful actions as counter-narratives. The author's complex experience of being Multiracial in the U.S. is revealed. Informed by Gloria Anzaldúa's concept of the Borderlands (2007) and Chicana feminism's resistance to fragmentation, the embodied practices of creating art and self-narratives are used as methods to (re)member and reexamine identity experiences. These acts become strategies for crossing monoracial boundaries and resisting the rigid boxing-in and labeling of racial identities. en
