Roberts, Diane (2007) ‘I’ For Identity: Reflections on Ageing with a Disability. In: Narrative and Memory. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 81-90.

One of the first things that should be made clear in respect of this paper is what
it is not. It is not a psychological examination of identity formation or
maintenance, neither does it relate to growing older and becoming disabled by
the effects of ageing. It is also not about reaching a specific age or having a
specific disability but is about the process of ageing through some
consideration of the variety of roles and identities experienced and negotiated
by those living with a disability as they become older. It is a ‘snapshot’
focused on the initial results from doctoral study which, as a ‘work in
progress’, may provide additional insights as the thesis nears completion. The
initial focus of the thesis was not on identity, however, and a short rehearsal of
the methodology used is needed to show why this emergent theme is regarded
as important.
