HSS Research Methodologies: Narrative Inquiry Research Method

Definition | Narrative Inquiry Research Method

"Narrative research...  refers to any study that uses or analyzes narrative materials." See Lieblich et al. (1998)

"By focussing on narrative we are able to investigate not just how stories are structured and they ways in which they work, but also who produces them and by what means, the mechanisms by which they are consumed; and how they are silenced, contested or accepted." See Tamboukou et al. (2013)
