Our Quest: How We Negotiate Our Multiple Selves on a Daily Basis
Callahan, Aimee; Kaiser, Leann M. R.; Erichsen, Elizabeth; Miller, Kelsee
Journal of Adult Education, v38 n2 p1-18 2009
Professional women face many changes and challenges in their lives. This article contains the personal narratives of four women who have carried on conversations to reflect upon their transformation from graduate students to educators. In the process, they relate adult learning theories to their own life experiences in order to gain a better understanding of the multiple "selves" that have developed in their lives. They found strength and encouragement in dialoguing with one another about their experiences and hope that by sharing they can offer the same to others who also feel split and conflicted in their multiplicities.
