Abstract:

This paper is empirically rooted in biographical data and investigates social valuing, stigmatisation and identity. Stigmatisation in itself is here described as an invisible barrier between social actors from lower and upper social strata. The concept of stigmatising identity work is generated from narrative and biographical interviews with adult leavers of children’s residential care institutions in Łódź and Łódź region (Poland) and is presented here together with a typology of different categories of stigmatising identity work performed on the narrators. A detailed example of stigmatisation, addressed as an institutional curse, is presented in the last part of the article
