PhD Project

Storytelling as an identity strategy among Moroccan adolescents in The Netherlands.

Moroccan Dutch youth are stigmatized in The Netherlands based on both their ethnic and religious background. In my research project I probe into the ways Moroccan Dutch young adults manage to (re)construct positive collective and individual identities in conversation with group members. I use a narrative approach to explore 1) how collective stories and underlying identity claims are constructed and negotiated in interaction; 2) how intersectionality influences the construction of a collective story and identity; 3) how context and strategy influences storytelling and 4) the reconstruction of belonging among Moroccan Dutch young adults.
