Abstract

This article explores the relationship between objects and their role in the recovery of (my) the father. Its distinguishing features include use of lived experience as gleaned through memory in combination with cultural and post-Kleinian theory in an exploration of the internal space constituted by Oedipal dynamics and domestic space inscribed as “multi-racial”. Its mode is free-associative, mirroring the act of remembering. It offers a distinctive contribution to the psychosocial, diaspora and memory literatures in its attempt to chart the simultaneous expansion of internal space and shrinking of ‘racial’ space that made room for a complicated, yet uncertain, psychic recognition of (my) the father.
