Abstract:

Life course literature as well as that of women's spiritual development suggests that two significant transitions occur as a woman moves from late adolescence into adulthood and when she moves through menopause. This work in progress focuses on women's use of spirituality to help negotiate these personal borderlands. We wish to explore women's changing spiritual identities during such times of transition. Based on previous research, we contend that the communicative negotiation and management of transitions as reflected in changing understandings of spiritual identity can be seen in a woman's negotiation of social identities in flux as well as the resilience provided by more enduring intrapersonal identities. We believe that we can gain understanding into this phenomenon by observing communicative behaviors associated with it. We plan to conduct group and individual interviews using Sense-Making Methodology protocols, and then use Feminist Standpoint Theory and Sense-Making Methodology to analyze the interview material.
