(p.15) 1 Culture, Identity, and Story: A Framework for the Study of Lives
Narrative and the Politics of Identity

Phillip L. Hammack

Oxford University Press

This chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to explore the central question of the relationship between master narratives—interpretations of historical events and collective experience—and the personal narrative of an individual. It then identifies the research questions that guided the work with Israeli and Palestinian youth and presents an overarching framework for the study of lives in conflict. Central to the framework are concepts of culture—not as static and reified but as dynamic and practice oriented—and of identity.

Keywords:   conflict, narratives, politics of identity, collective experience, culture
