For her essay, Camille will draw from her internship experience. This continuum, from clinical activity to academic reflection, will enable her to explore diverse themes involving the LGBTQ+ community and the intergenerational links addressed during her internship.
GOAL OR RESEARCH QUESTION:
Without focusing on a specific question that will delineate her reflections, Camille will concentrate on intergenerational relations in the LGBTQ+ community.
In the form of a series of questions, her provisional objectives will guide her master’s essay.
- Do persons of diverse sexual orientations and identities maintain intergenerational links? Do these links have beneficial effects? What are they?
- What are the obstacles to creating this type of link? What strategies do LGBTQ+ persons adopt to overcome them?
- What distinguishes the life courses of different generations of LGBTQ+ persons? What links them?
For her internship, Camille led discussion groups made up of LGBTQ+ individuals of different generations. In writing her essay, she will draw from both the results of these discussions and her review of the scientific literature concerning intergenerational links in the LGBTQ+ community.
Camille is presently writing her essay
