huh – Introduction to-narrative inquiry-workshop 2012 nice

One of the slides is made up of the following quote:

“Narrative inquiry [is] a methodology based upon collecting, analysing, and re-presenting people’s stories as told by them (…) based on a worldview (ontology) that we live our storied lives and our world is a stories world (…) Narrative represents, constitutes and shapes social reality (…) Competing narratives represent different realities not simply different perspectives (…) Telling and re-telling one’s story helps a person create a sense of self.” (Etherington 2004, 75)



About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
