Abstract: "This paper will explore the multiple dimensions of identity and marginalization read through life histories, lived experiences and everyday articulations of power in the context of the modern situation of the Lisu, an ethnic group of northern Thailand. It is through the analysis of identity and of every day lived experiences expressed through narrative that the role of internal and external factors in the contestation and construction of identity can be investigated. In order to understand these concepts we need to construct new methods and frameworks for examining cultural differences that consider the complexity of the culture, situating it not as a localized and static concept but as fluid, heterogeneous and dynamic."
