Identity crises of women through the ages – from the concept of Midlife-Crisis to permanent self-improvement during adulthood, and the effect on relationships and motherhood
In her PhD-project she focuses on “Identity crises of women through the ages – from the concept of Midlife-Crisis to permanent self-improvement during adulthood, and the effect on relationships and motherhood”.
Considering the performative characteristics of transitions in the life course, she will conduct a qualitative research to analyse how women experience and form identity crises and periods of self-improvement, and how they review these spans of time particularly with regard to potential consequences on their relationships and motherhood.
