dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores aspects of subjectivity and agency using, as a narrative and case study, a series of autobiographical and oral historical interviews with a family friend, Margaret (Peggy) Scott (b. 1930). Critical and theoretical models from literary theory, autobiography, ethnography, and oral history are used to examine ways in which the self is represented through narrative. The thesis argues for a model of subjectivity which is based in dialogue or polyphony of influence on the formation of the subject and the negotiation which goes on between the subject, and these influences to produce agency.en_US
