Narrative Research & Practice Intensive Course

University of Jyväskylä, Finland

With Kitrina Douglas

This course is an intensive study of narrative research and practice aimed at equipping students with the skills and expertise to conduct a narrative piece of research and publish the finding. The course progresses from developing a methodological, theoretical and ethical base for narrative inquiry in week one, through to conducting a narrative study and creating publishable findings. The lectures are augmented with additional reading, links and study each week. Each participant will also receive course notes, references, and copies of power point presentations. Together the course will foster a deeper appreciation for narrative inquiry as well as a greater understanding of its limits and uses.
