Exploring Online Identity Representation: A Response to "Heteronarrative Analysis"
Koschoreck, James W.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v24 n1 p27-30 Jan 2011
This paper represents a response to Kaufmann's article in this issue on the subject of heteronarrative analysis. The author highlights three elements of Kaufmann's argument to be especially persuasive: the use of narrative as an organizing principle of identity; the propensity of identity to be inflected by heteronormative logic; and the use of photographic and electronic media to disrupt identity. This analysis concludes with a suggestion that emerging methodologies designed to explore gender and identity should be carefully interrogated at the philosophical level of understanding if they are to provide useful insights.
