The literature on the relationship between narrative and identity is vast and reaches across numerous humanities and social science disciplines. JarmilaMildorf will therefore limit himself to some basic questions and give special consideration to the Internet as a more recent medium where narrative identity or, indeed, 'narrative identity', also plays a major role. McAdams, Josselson, and Lieblich describe narrative identity as 'the stories people construct and tell about themselves to define who they are for themselves and for others. As sociolinguistic research has amply demonstrated, speakers use stories to create professional, ethnic, and gendered identities for themselves. Their stories also mark their participation in social groups such as the family, the workplace, or other institutions. Digital media have changed the way narratives work. Marie-Laure Ryan discusses the extent to which the very properties of digital systems are not conducive to narrative meaning in a classical sense.
