Title: Storied Conflict Talk
Subtitle: Narrative construction in mediation
Written By: Katherine A. Stewart
Madeline M Maxwell
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiN%2012
Series Title: Studies in Narrative 12
Description:

Narrative analyses routinely investigate autobiographical and interview
data. This book examines narratives-in-interaction co-constructed by
participants in formal mediation sessions, by asking how many of the five
cases in the videotaped data display the adversarial narrative pattern
pervasive within the interpersonal conflict literature, and secondly what
other narrative patterns may be present, and how do they work? Focusing
simultaneously at the utterance level and the macro-levels present within
the larger dispute context, this book reveals situated communicative
practices by which interlocutors interactively construct, resist,
reproduce, and intertextually transform adversarial narratives to produce
outcomes consonant with their underlying interests. In contrast to the
dramaturgical model traditionally used in narrative research, this book
illuminates the emergent, microgenetic character of narrative development.
