Abstract

My contribution presents some conceptual reflections about auto/biographical work with non-traditional students in higher education. In the first part I present my Ph.D research design: the auto/biographical methods used and the different contexts in which the narrations were created. In the second part I enlighten the interdisciplinary aspects of the research in terms of field, method, object and conceptual frame. In particular I will expose the importance of abductive thinking in the auto/biographical proposals as well as in the analysis of learning processes embedded in students' writings, importing metaphors from sociology and evolutionary biology
