This essay originally interprets self-objectivation as utterly exceptional liberty (and privilege) of sociological observers. The author touches upon several dimensions of her social identity. Starting with the process of downward mobility undergone by her family, she goes over private issues such as her loss of faith and marital dynamics (as well as political engagement and relationship with academic institutions), linking her existential course to certain broader topics in particular: e´migre´s’ condition, split habitus, female subjugation, symbolic violence, interdisciplinarity.
