Abstract

[en] This work explores Marion Campbell's redefinition of identity as she discovers that her parents passed as white during apartheid, and at a time when the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings attract national attention. This analysis is tighlty linked to the notions of "racial" and cultural identies, to the concept of place, and to Michael Rothberg's concept of the implicated subject.
