Abstract:

The centrality of narrative analysis in the investigation of social
processes and practices has become an established fact in the human
sciences. The focus on narrative and displacement in this volume provides a
starting point for a reflection on current issues in narrative theory as
well as a timely interrogation of the role of narrative in illuminating
social phenomena that are central to modernity, such as migration and
displacement.

At the centre of the analyses presented in this book are stories that are
ignored, silenced and othered by contemporary public discourses on
displacement, migration and settlement. Drawing on insights from narrative
theory, linguistic ethnography, sociolinguistics and cultural studies,
contributors to the volume examine both how migrants, refugees, asylum
seekers and marginalized minorities position themselves through narrative
practices and how they are positioned in institutional and official narratives.

Contributors: Robert Barsky, Mike Baynham, Jan Blommaert, James Collins,
Marco Jacquemet, Ana María Relaño Pastor & Anna De Fina, Grit Liebscher and
Jennifer Dailey-O'Cain, John Haviland, Kay McCormick, Katrijn Maryns.


Mike Baynham is Professor of TESOL at the University of Leeds, UK. A
sociolinguist by training and applied linguist by affiliation, his research
interests lie in the application of insights from sociolinguistics to a
range of educational and social issues, particularly literacy and English
for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).

Anna De Fina is Assistant Professor of Italian Language and Linguistics and
Coordinator of the Italian Language Program at Georgetown University,
Washington D.C. She is author of Identity in Narrative, A Study of
Immigrant Discourse (John Benjamins, 2003) and co-editor, with Deborah
