A ‘Nested Narratives’ Project: theoretical grounding and methodological implications
Código: WPE – 308
Narratives have been conceptualized and approached in a variety of forms in the social sciences, including ‘narrative-as-explanations’ towards ‘narratives-as-ontologies’. At this paper I explore the extent that narratives are central for understanding the ‘projective agency’ and suggest that narratives as ontologies are nested and overlapped with public/institutional narratives. This review offers a set of ‘desiderata’ that are later taken on in order to assess current methodological approaches and analytical procedures, including how the ‘narrative as network’ project might be extended in order to help researchers to formalize nested narratives.
