Presentation Abstract

The autoethnography-based dissertation, Adaptation and Beyond: From Isolation and Separation Toward Broader Cultural Inclusion and Integration, examines the unique challenges of adaptation from an isolated religious subculture to the broader social and cultural milieu. Systematic introspection and emotional recall captured relived experiences. Interviews with acquaintances provided objective perspectives on intensely subjective experiences. Interviews with me, conducted by others, yielded rich, otherwise unavailable insights. Reviews of a substantial personal journal collection provided objective accounts of remembered experiences. These four techniques together lend an increased authenticity and degree of objectivity to a research approach that is highly subjective in nature.
