Adolescents' Scholastic Field, Identity Frames, and Future Projects

Abstract : The sociological model of frames and vicarious identity forms enables the integration of different approaches relative to "construction of self and "identity strategies," analysis of the complex processes involved in the creation of future goals in adolescence and questioning of pertinent guidance activities involving today's youths. The biographic transaction could hence be said diachronic and the relational transaction to be synchronic. Identity construction would hence be the fruit of a double transaction: a negotiation relative to institutional identity offer and an intimate deliberation. The identity frames system is a structure of structures underlying the representation of self and of others and the construction of self. The fields and habitus theory of Pierre Bourdieu leads to the following hypothesis: attendance of a scholastic system by adolescents leads to the formation in their minds of a system of representations of themselves, of others, of training, and of occupations, organized according to the basic dimensions structuring the system.
