Burr, 2003; Kvale, 1992; Widdershoven, 1994), what if the self is a position in language, something created from the dominant meanings that exist in society and culture? Accordingly, how identities are constituted and formed, and who we believe we are, may be a result of contingency and chance and historical circumstance instead of our unique characters or inevitable anthropological constraints (May, 2005). It was precisely this concern with the constraints and limits of individual experience that sparked Michel Foucault to consider how subjects were made not through their own will or inner essence, but through an intricate web of power relations, contingency and chance.

It consisted of a tower at its centre with windows looking down on a peripheric building that was divided into separate rooms or cells. Within each cell an individual is located in a position to be observed by the supervisor in the tower. Importantly, for Foucault’s analogy to work, the position of the tower in relationship to the cells made it impossible for individuals in their cells to know whether they were being observed. The prime effect of the panopticon, therefore, was to induce in each individual ‘a state of consciousness and permanent visibility that assures the automatic functioning of power’ (Foucault 1991: 200).

(2004) found that coaches were aware that restricting their contact with athletes to particular settings and durations allowed them to generate some space or leeway to build up an impression. The coaches perceived this to be a valuable strategy for two key reasons: initially, it helped create an environment where they were viewed as acting in the best interests of the athletes; then, the maintenance of such a space was considered to help reduce the chances of the presented image being discredited by protecting it from too close an inspection, thus allowing a state of ‘mystification’ about the performance (Goffman, 1959).
