Narrative Inquiry: A Dynamic Approach
(Sage Publications, 2013)
In an important new contribution to the field of narrative research, this book provides both a new theoretical orientation and a set of practical techniques that students can use to conduct narrative inquiry. Daiute explains the principles of what she terms “dynamic narrating” and how it compares to other forms of narrative research. She illustrates and applies dynamic narrative inquiry with examples, practical activities, applicable charts, suggestions for interpreting analyses, and tips on writing up the results. Her approach is grounded in an integration of cultural-historical activity, discourse theories that include critical discourse theory and conversation analysis, and interdisciplinary research on narrative as applied to a range of research projects in different cultural settings. Colette Daiute is a professor of psychology and urban education at the Graduate Center.
