Abstract

This research will explore processes of identity construction and liminality in women and men who are in the process of leaving the Royal Air Force. Individuals who are in the process of leaving the RAF have been interviewed in order to explore liminal themes as they adapt their perception of identity during transition from the military, a recognised masculine organisation, to Civvy Street. Using narrative analysis military identity and gender will be explored to further understanding of liminality and the long term effects of a total institution.
