HENRIQUES, Margarida Rangel; VIEIRA, André Guirland  e  GEDRAT, Dóris Cristina. Identity construction and re-construction in life stories of adopted individuals. Aletheia [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.1, pp. 06-15. ISSN 1413-0394.

ABSTRACT This study aims at identifying how adoption appears in life stories of adopted individuals and how much they normalize their experiences related to adoption. Focus is given to the process of re-historization of the "I", and the end of a narrative is taken as determined by its author instead of the events that are told chronologically. The data comes from narratives of two adopted individuals, transcribed according to Etnomethodological Conversation Analysis. It is pointed out how the events related to adoption appear, when both individuals re-historize their life stories and their partial "I" is constituted. Rhythmical properties and other characteristics of speech are considered in the investigation as well. It was found that the story ending influences on how the narrative is constructed and on how much normalized events related to adoption appear.
