Title:Narratives of transnational adolescent girls: Identity constructions and affiliation formations
Authors:Newsham, Kiyoko
Date Issued:11 Apr 2020
Abstract:This study explores through narrative analysis two transnational adolescent girls’ identities and their places of belonging. By examining their narratives in the formation of three different affiliations [(1) the heritage culture; (2) the heritage language; and (3) the family lifestyle], the study reveals that the two participants display contrasting stances in forming each affiliation. While one of the participants positions herself as someone who embraces her heritage cultures and proudly uses and maintains her heritage languages, the other participant displays her stance differently and less enthusiastically, although she shows respect and interest in her heritage culture and language. The study suggests the environment in which the participants grew up and the degree of their exposure to those heritage cultures and languages played a significant role in
influencing their sensemaking.
