Vociferate is a collection of poems inpsired by Asian-American feminist writers. Like these writers, Emily resists interpellation into both Eurocentric and patriarchal tropes, as she explores the idea of national and transnational identities and the concept of belonging. Underpinning the poems is a resistance to Orientalism, and an untangling of what it means to be an Asian-Australian moving through many different geopolitical and social contexts.
