Narrative – State of the Art

Special issue of Narrative Inquiry 16:1 (2006)

Michael Bamberg | Clark University
This special issue Narrative – State of the Art is edited by Michael Bamberg and contains 24 articles that look back and take stock of developments in narrative theorizing and empirical work with narratives. The attempt has been made to bring together researchers from different disciplines, with very different concerns, and have them express their conceptions of the current state of the art from their perspectives. It was the aim of this collection of articles to stir up discussions among narrative researchers across these disciplines and open up the terrain of Narrative Inquiry to new and innovative work.
