‘Think of race or of patriarchy, of their internal, compulsive shapes and external structures; of how at the same time they are what we ‘live’ and how we make our own kind of sense of life. They frame ways of thinking and feeling and experiencing, which are not always cognitively or consciously available. The ‘maps of meaning’ that enable us to become subjects are what in another context we would call ‘culture’. And yet at the at very moment when these structures of exclusion, of superiority and inferiority, of marginalisation, of otherness are operating, the troubled subject comes to life.’
