This chapter combines critical autoethnography with reflections on interviewing recently-migrated Asian teachers as co-researchers, using in-depth semi-structured interviews, conducted online. Reflective methodological reading combines with personal stories, allowing the reader to empathise and actively participate in the researcher’s thoughts and experiences, connecting past incidents of everyday racism with heightened awareness of anti-Asian racism surfaced by the contemporary COVID-19 pandemic. Critical auto-ethnography exposes a ‘vulnerable self’, sharing private details and emotions and engaging traditional and non-traditional audiences in dialogue. By writing stories about experiences that are not often told, the author exposes, analyses and challenges majoritarian stories of racial privilege and broader structures of racism. Autoethnography is political in nature, and critical autoethnography aims to catalyse emancipatory personal and social change.
