Routledge International Handbook on Narrative and Life History (Hardcover)
About this item
In recent decades we have seen a substantial turn towards narrative and life history study. The embrace of narrative and life history work has accompanied the move to postmodernism and post-structuralism across a wide range of disciplines: sociological studies, gender studies, cultural studies, social history; literary theory and most recently psychology.
Written by leading international scholars from the main contributing perspectives and disciplines, The Routledge International Handbook on Narrative and Life Historyseeks to capture the range and scope as well as the considerable complexity of the field of narrative study and life history work by situating these fields of study within the historical and contemporary context. Topics covered include:
- The Historical Emergences of Life History and Narrative study
- Techniques for conducting life history and narrative study
With chapters from expert contributors, this volume will prove a comprehensive and authoritative resource to students, researchers and educators interested in narrative theory, analysis and interpretation.
