Stories about Methodology: Diffracting Narrative Research Experiences

Nicolás Schöngut Grollmus, Joan Pujol Tarrés

Abstract


Despite narrative inquiry being widely established in the social sciences, it is practiced in diverse ways, depending on the theoretical and epistemological stances of researchers. In this article we analyze six narratives of investigators recounting their narrative research experiences as a way to incorporate diversity within this field of inquiry. From a narrative analysis perspective, we explain our results through two different texts. The first tackles theoretical, methodological, and technical issues of narrative inquiry, while the second focuses on ethical and political aspects of the researcher's narrative experiences. These texts allow us to construct a reflexive approach to the implementation of different forms of narrative inquiry, considering their theoretical and epistemological premises of its practice.
