2018 Issue: Editors’ Note

Traveling—it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.

—Ibn Battuta

Dislocation suggests a disturbance from an original, familiar, or usual state of being. In this issue, we reflect upon on how travel disrupts what has been previously understood as truth. Being physically “dislocated” from all that is familiar to us roused examinations of identity and positionality. As we mentally “dislocated” from our original state of being, we discovered new lenses with which to view the world around us. We are questioning the provided narrative and investigating our own privileges. We are striving to be mindful and present. We are learning to think beyond our individual realities.
