1. Myrie, Rachelle C. “I’m Creating My Own Soca Tune… as I Discover Myself”: Intersections of Music and Identity in Immigrant Young Adults .

Degree: 2017, University of Guelph

This study is a qualitative exploration of music as a narrative form and the role it plays in the identity development of African and African-Caribbean immigrant young adults residing in Ontario, Canada. Eleven African and African-Caribbean permanent and temporary immigrants, between the ages of 19 and 29, participated in semi-structured interviews. Interviews centered on immigration experience and music use. The interviews elicited rich accounts of experiences pertaining to personal, racial and ethnic components of identity. Thematic analysis indicated that music is instrumental in identity development as it can provide coherence across time and context in the framework of relationships, including relationships with place, people and various selves. Furthermore, findings highlight that music can contribute to identity development by facilitating resistance to master narratives. This study expands on current narrative research and pushes scholars to consider narrative forms that veer from traditional oral storytelling; it calls for exploration of stories that are not only experienced in the mind but are embodied. Advisors/Committee Members: Breen, Andrea V (advisor).

2. Scott, A. Christine. Assembling Identity: The Support for Self Within and Across Individualized Spaces .

Degree: 2016, University of Guelph

The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the use and development of physical and virtual individualized spaces as contexts for self and identity during the transition to university residence. Twenty-three female emerging adults (ages 18 to 20) were interviewed in their dorm rooms in a mid-sized university in Ontario, Canada. The interview focused on personal artifacts and their connections to self and identity and included a participant-led “tour” of participants’ dorm rooms and preferred virtual spaces. The interviews elicited rich narratives about experiences and relationships, conceptions of change over time, and personal goals oriented to the future. Findings suggest that both physical and virtual individualized spaces provide visual clues and scaffolding for conceptualizing the self, as well as support for identity processes related to change and continuity. Furthermore, participants were maintaining access to supports for the self and identity through the creation and use of multiple individualized spaces. Overall, this study provides a deeper understanding of how objects and spaces may be used to support the self, identity development, and well-being during the transition to university residence. Advisors/Committee Members: Breen, Andrea V (advisor).

3. Walji, Natasha. Masjids and Maple Leafs: The Influence of Media Culture on Muslim Young Adults’ Ethnic Identities in a Canadian Context .

Degree: 2018, University of Guelph

The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the influence of media stories on ethnic identity development in Muslim Young Adults. Twenty Muslim young adults aged 18-25 residing in Ontario participated in a qualitative interview which focused on the influence of media stories on their ethnic identity. Participant narratives were analyzed using thematic analysis (Braun & Clark, 2006). Findings suggest that master narratives about Muslims that are communicated through media stories tend to position Muslims as violent and scary. Participants described different perceptions and reactions in relation to these media stories, including prompting exploration and expression of ethnic identity, impacts on feelings of belonging and fear, the development of strategies for resistance and implications for current and possible life trajectories. Findings are discussed in relation to implications for future research. Advisors/Committee Members: Breen, Andrea V (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: narrative identity; ethnic identity; media stories
