Narrative research methods in the social sciences – value for research in management, HRM and employment

___________________________________________________________________________

 

Description

Narrative research has become ubiquitous across many different fields of social sciences research. Reflecting these various contexts are the contested theoretical understanding of what constitute narratives and their relationship to personal identities and social life. They may be understood as reports of singular actual events, or stories of personal experience ranging from critical turning points to whole life stories. Are they constructed and ‘owned’ by individuals, or collectively constructed? Forms and media also vary including the spoken, written and visual. Stories are centrally about meaning-making. They connect personal experience to wider social and cultural life, both through the telling and the told. Narratives, then can be understood as a point of intersection between the personal and the social where human meaning emerges, and they can also be transformed. Personal stories, then, exist in a world of other stories, some more dominant than others. They may become sites of struggle for recognition and of resistance in relation to the broader social worlds in which people live and work.

While narrative research is increasingly employed in research in studies in organisational, management and work and employment, its connection to underlying theorisation about what narratives are, how they function, what their significance is and the analytical methods associated the use of narratives, including in the research process itself, lacks the same attention that it has received in recent years within sociology.

This seminar/workshop brings together researchers using narrative methods in work and employment with researchers specialising in narrative methods within sociology to explore and develop researchers’ appreciation, skill and confidence in applying narrative methods in management, HRM and work and employment.
