"...what is 'ours' may also be 'theirs', and visa versa: where difference in 'reconciliation' co-exists uneasily... one's place is always already another's place and the issue of possession is never complete, never entirely settled. the conventional colonial distinctions between self and other, here and there, mine and yours, are now by no means determinable... so one can never be completely in possession of place: one is always (dis)possessed, in the sense that neither possession nor dispossession is a fully realisable category."

Gelder and Jacobs, 1998 Uncanny Australia: Sacredness and Identity in a Postcolonial Nation.
