dc.description.abstractEnglsih: In the last two decades of the twentieth century there has been an upsurge of interest in self and identity studies. Through the bifocal lens of consciousness studies and black feminisms this article sets out to explore how the self is textually represented by the South African writer Ellen Kuzwayo, in her autobiography Call me woman, and the African-American author Toni Morrison, in her fictional Beloved. The aim is to show that although both writers are black and may represent commonalities there are also many differences in their depictions of the female consciousness that ultimately takes its shape from interactions within its own social milieu.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Tydens die laaste twee dekades van die twintigste eeu was daar ’n toenemende belangstelling in self- en identiteitsnavorsing. Deur die bifokale lens van bewussynstudie en swart feminismes poog hierdie artikel om die eie-ek soos tekstueel deur die Suid-Afrikaanse skryfster Ellen Kuzwayo in haar outobiografie, Call me woman, en deur die Afro-Amerikaanse outeur Toni Morrison in die roman Beloved neerslag gegee, te ontleed. Daar sal aangetoon word dat, alhoewel beide skrywers swart is en daar dus raakpunte tussen hulle ervarings mag wees, daar beslis ook verskille is in hulle voorstelling van vroulike bewuswording wat uiteindelik vorm aanneem binne die betrokke sosiale milieuaf
