How we tell stories and what our stories reveal about us, our lives and our relations with others has attracted the attention of numerous strands of social scientific inquiry. It is notable that narrative research interviews constitute the main qualitative method for identity analysis. Discourse and sociolinguistic studies of storytelling have drawn on this diversity of social scientific work but they have also infused it with vital insights into how everyday life stories are told in interaction with other people and in specific contexts. Narrative analysis has been particularly useful and instrumental in studies of multilingual/multicultural individuals and groups.
Instructors: Anna De Fina (Georgetown) & Alex Georgakopoulou (King’s College London)
Course Description:The aim of this course is to familiarize you with the main frameworks within discourse and sociolinguistic studies for the analysis of stories and identities.
The presentation of concepts and analytical tools will become tangible with close analysis of a wide range of stories from various everyday life contexts: cafés, classrooms, the workplace, social media platforms, etc.
