Abstract: The stories we tell about our political lives, our personal political narratives, are the outcomes of our encounters with the master narratives of our time and place.
As we encounter significant others, enter into dialogue, and engage in social practice, we construct and reconstruct accounts of ourselves in political relationship with others.
In so doing, we give shape to our political identities. In the light of narrative research data, the paper is an exploration of encounters between personal and master narratives as they relate to three core elements of ideology: The cognitive construction of the political world (perspective); the affective orientation to the political world (pride); and imaginative deconstructions and reconstructions of the political world (possibility).
