What discourse analysis reveals about elderly women, sex and the struggle with societal norms
In my commentary on Jones's study concerning how older women talk about their sexuality and intimate relationships I will focus on two issues: (1) What the study reveals about the intertwining of personal and cultural meaning and on its contribution to gerontological research. (2) Entering the field of narrative studies from a more sociolinguistic background and working within a more ethnographic orientation to the analysis of talk, I am particularly interested in methodological questions of empirical research. Hence, I will have a closer look at Jones's study with an eye to her methodology, trying to point out some techniques that might be of help for further research on narratives.
