Sample text

The divide which results from being 44 SITUATED VOICES a white or black person erects an indissoluble boundary which determines experience. Thus despite the variation between this speaker and the previous one, the way she poses the situation re-establishes the closeness between them because they both see racism as an essentially black experience. The boundaries created by racialized experiences are clearly expressed in the words of the following speaker. a. e. ] ‘They bring in real different things, they bring in their real experience as black women, the cultural experience and life experience, which no matter how much you live in England, and no matter how much contact you have with white people— you can live with them, and you can be friends with them, everything— your experience is still different to theirs and that is the bottom line.

For example, this speaker’s formulation of ‘something extra there’ is in contrast to the formulation by the third speaker that ‘we tend to be 40 SITUATED VOICES more logical’. This ‘something extra’ acts to demarcate black women from white women. Similarly the connection to service users is spoken in a similar language to that already heard, although this speaker seems to particularly focus on links to, and empathy with, black service users. This is less clear in other voices. Significantly, in this formulation the changes that social work can effect on clients suggests that they are the objects which are acted upon by a social work subject—to ‘facilitate some sort of change in service users’.

The complex relationships between behaviour and its representation are either ignored or made irrelevant; experience is collapsed into discourse and vice versa. Second, since experience has a fundamentally psychological status, [in this approach] questions of history and collectivity are formulated on the level of attitude and intention…. If the assumption of the sameness of experience is what ties woman (individual) to women (group), regardless of class, race, nation and sexualities, the notion of experience is anchored firmly in the notion of the individual self, a determined and specifiable constituent of European modernity.
