Transforming Experiences: Re-conceptualising identities and ‘non-normative’ childhoods
£326,771, Economic and Social Research Council Description This ESRC Professorial Fellowship research programme addresses how adults from different family backgrounds negotiate their identities as they re-evaluate their earlier experiences. It will explore the factors that produce adult citizens who are 'unremarkable' in not requiring social work intervention despite having childhood experiences often viewed as 'non-normative'. It will consider three sets of family experiences, where children: (i) from the Caribbean come to Britain to rejoin their parents in the process of serial migration; (ii) have grown up in families of mixed ethnicity and (iii) have been 'language brokers', sometimes taking responsibility for their parents as translators. The research will examine the ways in which adults use their past and current experiences to produce future identities, and how these can be transformed. It acknowledges that family lives in childhood help to constitute adult lives.
