Course Introduction

This course provides an overview of narrative research methodologies and approaches to analysis. It explores 3 key areas: oral personal narratives; written narratives; and visual narratives. It addresses questions such as how people come to see themselves as distinct subjects about whom a story can be told, the role of memory in people's accounts of their lives, and how class, ethnicity, gender and other social characteristics shape the stories people tell.
