Stories of Becoming

Stories of Becoming

This volume analyses and exemplifies the use of storytelling in three related fields of practice: education, counselling (especially narrative therapy) and research in the human sciences. In all of these fields, the use of storytelling is strongly related to what the Russian semiologist Mikhail M. Bakhtin called ‘becoming’: the on-going process through which individuals learn to relate to themselves and their surroundings. The chapters are written by researchers from a wide variety of disciplines, guaranteeing an inspiring inter-disciplinary outlook on the use of storytelling. As it reviews a wide range of methods for storytelling in academic and professional practices, this volume will be of value for scholars of applied narratology, researchers working in the human sciences, counsellors and educators, as well as other professionals who wish to integrate storytelling into their work.
