about this item

Featuring contributions from leading scholars in the field, The Handbook of Narrative Analysis is the first comprehensive collection of sociolinguistic scholarship on narrative analysis to be published. The collection includes chapters that exhibit the latest advances in narrative analysis, from work on social media to small stories research, as well as essays that address topics traditionally shaped and influenced by narrative inquiry, such as researcher reflexivity, embodiment, story ownership, and chronotopic configurations. Organized thematically to provide a guide for approaching the study of narrative without prescribing a rigid framework for analysis, the Handbook strikes an ideal balance between theoretical framing and the demonstration of specific analytical approaches.

Edited by two leading authorities on narrative research, and pioneers of the practice-based approach to narrative analysis, this Handbook will be an essential resource for anyone interested in better understanding the stories we tell and why we tell them.
