Narratological interest

My current research is focused on the role of contemporary technology in the production of Selves and autobiographical memory in the first generation of online life writers. I approach a sample of biographical cases from the perspective of narrative and discursive studies. I am investigating which strategies of the identity construction are allocated to the ego-narratives with different degree of intimacy (open and (semi-)closed online journals, hand-written diaries, letters and oral storytelling); how the writing of members of the community contributes to the co-production of meaning and reshaping the narrated Self; how the access to former ego-narratives produced with different intentions impact the reconstruction of life story.
