LOCAL AND ETHNIC IDENTITY CONSTRUCTIONS IN LIFE STORIES: A POSSIBLE ANALYSIS METHOD OF LIFE STORIES
Languages of publication
Regarding the last ethnological, cultural anthropological, literary, sociological and psychological theories, one property of modern life stories is that they reflect the identities of a given personality. In this study, I would like to aim at showing what they can tell us about the ethnic, local or regional identities of an individual, a family or a given group - with the help of an interdisciplinary analysis method. This method is based on the combination of three theories: the theoretical background ethnography adopting narratology for text analysis, hermeneutic phenomenology coming from sociology and discourse analysis. I would like to illustrate some examples offered by the results of my research about the inhabitants of Galanta, Gabčíkovo and Komárno, which have mixed-ethnic population. The research concentrates on the frame of Slovak-Hungarian relations.
