Counter-narratives only make sense in relation to something else, that
which they are countering. The very name identifies it as a positional
category, in tension with another category. But what is dominant and what
is resistant are not, of course, static questions, but rather are forever
shifting placements. The discussion of counter-narratives is ultimately a
consideration of multiple layers of positioning. The fluidity of these
relational categories is what lies at the center of the chapters and
commentaries collected in this book. The book comprises six target chapters
by leading scholars in the field. Twenty-two commentators discuss these
chapters from a number of diverse vantage points, followed by responses
from the six original authors. A final chapter by the editor of the book
series concludes the book.
