Title

Narrative, Identity and Leadership in Emerging Adulthood: The Getting of Wisdom

Description

L. P. Young Student Center, West Dining and Flag Room
Qualitative research allows for a thorough understanding of human social and emotional phenomena. This panel presentation focuses on the importance of qualitative intrinsic case studies conducted by members of the Honors Senior Capstone. Using four lenses of inquiry - Campbell's Hero's Journey, the dialogical self, experience in the Millennial generation, and global engagement - this project explored, through an intensive study of the constructed self, the life of an emerging adult as s/he examined the development of adult identity and leadership. The case study utilized data analysis, history, interviews, personal narrative, and focused reflection, with particular emphasis on the student's transformation during the college years. The presentation will describe the process of self-examination, and will demonstrate the value of qualitative study of the evolution of graduating college students as they seek meaningful work and an authentic adult life.
