dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores the subjective experiences of self-identifying multiracial individuals in relation to how location factors into the formation and understanding of their multiracial identity. This study builds upon a phenomenological framework, incorporating constructivism and relativism to conceptualise the formation of their individual identity within larger, cross-cultural and cross-national contexts. Through the use of semi-structured interviews, the interplay between social context, social construction of race and location on the subsequent formation of a multiracial identity is explored. Where previous research and study is situated within a fixed context, this paper explores the lesser researched domain of the ‘global mixed race’ as a reality and a framework for understanding multiracial identity, with location as a key component to exploring fluctuating self-identification. The paper incorporates a self-reflexive approach towards understanding the researcher’s incentives to engage with this subject and contextualises the research through literature on social construction of identity, race and the multiracial experience.en
