Description

Working with Narrative Theory, Thinking Complexity

Social Narrative theory remains a rich, rigorous and attractive theoretical framework with which to approach the study of translations and translators. Nevertheless—or perhaps because of this!— students often struggle to engage with the theory in meaningful, insightful and productive ways. This interactive, practical Masterclass aims to address some of the issues that arise as the novice narrative theorist approaches the literature and their topic. Students are encouraged to bring their questions about narrative analysis, research design and methodology, and should be prepared to share samples of their working data, useful references and good practice.

In addition, the class will extend to considerations of ways in which resonances from Complexity Theory, namely the position of the observer/researcher, emergence, fractals and bifurcation, can stretch our thinking about how narratives work and how we might work with narratives. Challenges such as self-reflexivity, selecting and delineating data, narrative and data visualisation, knowing where and how to begin a narrative analysis and ways in which narrative change can instigate political change are some of the topics we will explore together.
