Abstract:

The different traditions that have inspired the contributors to this volume
can be divided along three different orientations, one that is rooted
predominantly in sociolinguistics, a second that is ethnomethodologically
informed, and a third that came in the wake of narrative interview
research. All three share a commitment to view self and identity not as
essential properties of the person but as constituted in discursive
practices and particularly in narrative. Moreover, since self and identity
are held to be phenomena that are contextually and continually generated,
they are defined and viewed in the plural, as selves and identities. In the
attempt of moving closer toward a process-oriented approach to the
formation of selves and identities, this volume sets the stage for future
discussions of the role of narrative and discourse in this generation
process and for how a close analysis of these processes can advance an
understanding of the world around us and within this world, of identities
and selves.
