Self-Narration, Autobiography and Identity Construction.
Kehily, Mary Jane
Gender and Education, v7 n1 p23-31 Mar 1995
Explores the links between personal story-telling, autobiographical writing, and the processes of identity construction. It is suggested that autobiographical writing produces particular versions of identity, framed by social context and dominant gender relations. A more critical approach to personal story-telling is outlined to explain experiences in relation to gender, sexuality, and identity. (GR)
