Symon, Gillian; Chamakiotis, Petros; Whiting, Rebecca and Roby, Helen (2014). Identity work across boundaries in a digital world. In: British Academy of Management (BAM 2014), 9-11 Sep 2014, Belfast.


In this paper we examine the identity work involved in negotiating work-life boundaries and the implications new digital media may have for this. Thirteen social entrepreneurs kept video diaries and attended interviews where those diaries were discussed in relation to participants’ life narratives. At this stage, we present some preliminary analysis of these data, focusing on one particular individual. Our main aims from the session are to elicit discussion both of the development of the underlying theoretical framework and the data collection technique.
