Abstract [en]

Life stories and experiences are shaped within a broad range of uses of heavily institutionalized identity politics, mediated narratives and situational bodily experiences. Acting upon individual desires is a necessity for formation of collective identities and identification, communicatively constructing society. Examples from a variety of contexts will be used to argue that meaning is created through exchange between spheres of different logics: existential, political, market and institutional logics might openly oppose and contradict each other and crave for autonomy. When successful in establishing a powerful historical culture they do nevertheless more often reinforce each other when life experiences and new utopias are being shaped through narrating and negotiating memories to deal with contemporary challenges.

Abstract [pt]

As experiências e histórias de vida são moldadas no âmbito de um vasto leque de usos de políticas de identidade fortemente institucionalizadas, narrativas mediadas e experiências situacionais concretas. A ação sobre os desejos individuais é necessária para a formação de identidades e identificações coletivas, construindo comunicacionalmente a sociedade. São apresentados exemplos de vários contextos para argumentar que o significado é criado por meio de trocas entre esferas de diferentes lógicas – existenciais, políticas, de mercado e institucionais – que podem opor-se e contradizer-se claramente e aspirar à autonomia. Contudo, se conseguirem estabelecer uma história cultural forte, estas lógicas reforçam-se mutuamente com maior frequência quando são moldadas experiências de vida e novas utopias através da narração e da negociação de memórias para fazer frente aos desafios contemporâneos.
