dc.description.abstract [Conference Program Abstract] In this paper, I use psychoanalytic theory to re-consider the concept of identity. Using Lacanian psychoanalysis, I attempt to understand a subject’s shifting identity through the Imaginary, the Symbolic, and the Real. Thus, the subject’s identity (identification) becomes contingent on the ego, the big Other, intersubjectivity, and desire. I demonstrate how this psychoanalytic conception of identity can open up possibilities of inquiry into a teacher’s desire to learn. Some possible questions include: How are identity and desire related? In what ways can narratives be generated to study the desire to learn? Who is and what is the role of the research subject/researcher? en
