Narrative Identity Development: Introduction to the Field and Recent Trends


Narrative identity is the evolving life story that individuals create about themselves to make meaning out of experiences in life. Stories of personal experiences are also told to and with others, which means that the narrative identity is influenced by interactions with others and the context that the stories are created within.

Kate McLean is a professor at Western Washington University, U.S., and her research focuses on adolescent and emerging adult identity development. In this talk she will cover the theoretical and empirical foundations of the field of narrative identity development. She will also discuss recent work on the role of audiences (e.g., mothers, friends) for storying identity-defining stories in adolescence and emerging adulthood.

The lecture is open to all interested. No pre-registration is required.
