Summary: Mathematical identity is a growing area of contemporary research. This paper uses dialogical self theory to support a notion of mathematical identity as being made up of multiple positions. These positions make up the mathematical `self'. This paper focuses on a single case drawn from a wider study of parental mathematical identity. It demonstrates the application of dialogical self theory to show how mathematical experiences influences Ipositions, how social and cultural factors shape social positions, and how the dialogical mathematical self can be seen to consist of multiple positions which vary both spatially and chronologically.
