The primary goal of my PhD project is to investigate how mothers and fathers differ in the way they converse about past events with their children, and whether such gender differences in the reminiscing style occur in the first place. Since most of the research on reminiscing style has focused on mothers, and since most studies have been conducted in countries where mothers are the primary caregivers, it is relevant to examine fathers' reminiscing style in Denmark where fathers are roughly equally involved in the children's upbringing as mothers are. Ultimately, the aim of the study is to examine whether reminiscing is a gendered activity typical of females or whether it is more likely to be a reflection of the emotional involvement of parents.
