In this conversation with advaya, Leny Strobel discusses diasporic identity formation; reconfiguring belonging in the context of empire, as a process of re-membering; how she draws from the well of liminal space; and more. Leny speaks to us with and from her personal history and experience of being a Kapampangan from Central Luzon in the Philippines, and (currently) a settler on Wappo, Pomo, and Coast Miwok lands.
