The Redemptive Self (PLV)
Who are we as Americans? What is our deep identity? How do we make a good life? Renowned scholar Dan McAdams, PhD, discusses his research on personality and life narratives, including a panel with Pace faculty on the redemptive self, on April 3 in PLV.
"Many American adults today see their lives in redemptive terms or seek to narrate their lives in ways to suggest that some form of redemption will ultimately prevail."
Spend a day with Dan McAdams, PhD, renowned scholar and researcher at Northwestern University, who will visit Pace on Thursday, April 3, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Gottesman Room in PLV to discuss his research on personality and life narratives, specifically, a discussion on the redemptive self.
Following his talk, McAdams will participate in a discussion among faculty from various departments and students on how the redemptive self plays across history, culture, the arts, and personal life stories. Featured panelists include Lawrence Hundersmarck, PhD, Dyson Dean Nira Herrmann, PhD, Adelia Williams, PhD, Ross Robak, PhD, Angela Legg, PhD, and Linda Anstendig, PhD.
In his book The Redemptive Self: Stories Americans Live By, McAdams suggests that the key to American identity lies in the stories we live by. And the most powerful life story in America today is the story of redemption. On a broad societal scale and in our own private lives, we want first and foremost to transform our suffering into a positive emotional state, to move from pain and peril to redemption. American identity is the redemptive self.
