Your Stories and Your Identity with Professor Ed de St. Aubin – 11-19-16
November 1, 2016
The stories about our life experiences become a key part of who we identify ourselves to be. They help us to understand our relationship to ourselves and others, and how we feel about events that happen in our life. Who or what would we be without our stories? This week we will look closer at how our stories become the narrative of our life, and what that means for our daily interaction in our world. Our guest is a Professor at Marquette University in Milwaukee who has researched and studied our relationship to our stories.
Professor Ed de St. Aubin received his Ph.D. at Northwestern University and has been at Marquette since 1999. Ed has taught a wide variety of courses (e.g., Personality, Child and Adolescent Development, Human Sexuality, The Narrative Self, Adult Development and Aging, Psychology and Culture, Personal Meaning in a Complex World). Other specific interests include psychobiography, integrating quantitative and qualitative research, family dynamics, and the embeddedness of human lives.
He loves teaching and has been awarded 14 teaching grants and has delivered over a dozen invited presentations regarding quality teaching. Professor de St. Aubin was selected by students to the Faculty Honor Roll while at Northwestern University and received three teaching awards while at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, including the University of Wisconsin System Teaching Fellow. At Marquette, Ed received the 2003 Excellence in Advising award and the 2008 Rev. John P. Raynor, S.J., Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence.
