Biography and turning points in Europe and America
Malmö högskola, Faculty of Education and Society (LS), Department of Culture, Languages and Media (KSM).
2012 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This sociological collection advances the argument that the concept of a `turning point´expands our understanding of life experiences from a descriptive to a deeper and more abstract level of analysis. It addresses the conceptual issue of what distinguishes turning points from life transitions in general and raises crucial questions about the application of turning points as a biogrphical research method. Biography and turning points in Europe and America is all the more distinctive and significant due to its broad empirical database. The anthology includes authors from ten different countries, providing a number of contexts for thinking about how turning points relate to constructions of meaning shaped by globalisation and by cultural and structural meanings unique to each country. The book will be useful across a wide rangev of social sciences and particularly valuable for researchers needing a stronger theoretical base for biographical work.
