Book Information


Title: Learning and Teaching Narrative Inquiry
Subtitle: Travelling in the Borderlands
Edited By: Sheila Trahar
Series Title: Studies in Narrative 14

In the final chapter of this volume, the authors refer to the “pedagogical vantage
points offered by narrative inquiry”, an apt comment that encapsulates the
volume’s purpose and its spirit. As an increasing number of people throughout
the world – and from a broad range of disciplines – are turning to narrative as a
research methodology, this volume is timely in its focus on the learning and
teaching of this approach. The contributors to the volume, all narrative scholars
themselves, write about the creative and challenging pedagogical activities that
they use in order to enable others to learn about and do narrative research. The
volume will be of particular interest to those teaching narrative research
methodologies at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the social
sciences, medical sciences and the humanities. The contributions from Hong
Kong, Israel, Europe and North America, all reflect critically on the rich
complexities of using and teaching narrative in those contexts and attend
closely to the diverse constituencies of their learning communities.
