Abstract:

The book explores the historical dimension of Indian indenture from within the 
lived experience of laborers, who emigrated to Fiji from colonial India a century 
ago. As these laborers are no longer alive, one could argue that the experience 
of indenture is no longer accessible, if there had not been recordings of the 
laborers' life narratives. It is seven of these audio recordings, made for public 
broadcast, which form the data for a fine-grained language-analysis to unearth 
the life-world of indenture. Through the merging of Labov's high-point analysis 
with Bamberg's positioning analysis, the book focuses on the situated 
discursive performativity of identities, and draws attention to the complex and at 
times conflicting positions within the life narratives. Sorting through those 
positions resulted in the ultimate challenge to the essentially homogenizing 
current master narrative discourse on who can be classified as an indentured 
laborer, and what signifies as an indenture experience.
