This theoretical study compares both composition and psychology texts with the experiences of the researcher-as-writer and researcher-as-writing-instructor through the use of narrative inquiry. By correlating insights developed through self-narrative with psychoanalytical scholarship, an understanding of identity and its influence on the writer and the effects of writing on identity construction is explored. This will lead to new ways of addressing identity as an important function of the first-year composition class.I also opened the chapter with the stage-setting section and the preceding essay in order to introduce myselfa€”that is, me, the guy named Stephen Swartza€” as opposed to being the author of this dissertation, some generic researcher.
