November Works-in-Progress: Sandra Tarabochia

Join us online as Sandra Tarabochia shares about her current research project, “Self-Authorship and Faculty Writers’ Trajectories of Becoming.” Details for joining us on Zoom are below.

Abstract: This presentation examines preliminary findings from a longitudinal research study designed to uncover the learning pathways of faculty writers and considers self-authorship as a framework for theorizing faculty writers’ “trajectories of becoming” (Prior 2018). With epistemological (how we know), interpersonal (how we relate to others) and intrapersonal (how we understand ourselves) dimensions (Kegan, 1994; Baxter Magolda, 2001), self-authorship is a promising lens for understanding the experiences of writers transitioning to faculty positions; yet no studies have been conducted toward that end (Werder, 2013). Therefore, using the Subject Object Interview protocol (Kegan et al., 1982; Lahey, et al., 2011) to gather data from faculty writers and qualitative coding methods to analyze transcripts (Saldaña, 2016), my research examines self-authorship as a flexible construct for revealing multiple dimensions of faculty writer development. Findings challenge traditional faculty support efforts focused on writing and research productivity, asking instead how we might create environments that cultivate diverse, holistic processes of becoming.
