identity as narrative
Reading Charlotte H‰gstrˆm’s chapter for our World of Warcraft anthology, I found this quote:
A person’s identity is not to be found in behavious. Nor – important though this is – in the reactions of othersm but in the capacity to keep a particular narrative going. (Giddens 1991:54; emphasis his)
And I’m sure that has something to do with blogs. Charlotte’s chapter, btw, is wonderful, all about names in WoW, and excellently written.
