We begin by presenting their understanding of the subject and individual identity and then move on to cover collective identity and group formation. Subject Positions As mentioned in Chapter 1, interpellation was Althusser’s suggestion for an alternative to the classical Western view of the subject. Individuals are interpellated or placed in certain positions by particular ways of talking. If a child says ‘mum’ and the adult responds, then the adult has become interpellated with a particular identity – a ‘mother’ – to which particular expectations about her behaviour are attached.
We propose an analytical separation of the two. The field of discursivity would then denote all possible, excluded constructions of meaning (such as football in relation to medical discourse), while ‘order of discourse’ – a concept from Fairclough’s critical discourse analysis – would denote a limited range of discourses which struggle in the same terrain (such as the domain of health and illness). To return to Laclau and Mouffe’s conceptual definitions, the field of discursivity is understood as everything outside the discourse, all that the discourse excludes.
