This essay investigates the autobiographical voice as a means of claiming or disavowing racial identities. With reference to the work of Levi, Bauman, Cohen, Rose and Rich, it argues that the 'autobiographical act' enables the 'disassembling' of the racialised self, offering possibilities for challenging homogenous and reified categories such as 'white' and 'black'. It takes examples from sociological and anthropological theorists to highlight the significance of situation, place and gender, and aligns this argument with feminist work on gender and subjectivity.
