Epistemological and political entanglements in Narrative Production methodology
Narrative research in Psychology has a long and important tradition that has been renovated by its recent popularization. Nowadays, it comprises a diverse field including a plurality of theoretical perspectives and ways of understanding narratives in relation to its privileged location at the intersection of personal and social life. The key aim of this special issue of Qualitative Research in Psychology is to contribute to current debates on Narrative research within Psychology by addressing the political and epistemological principles that sustain knowledge as a situated intersectional process that is constructed in a dialogical manner.
In this Special Issue we draw attention to narrative production research that is concerned with how psychology can bring about social change in the form of emancipation and social justice. We are interested in exploring innovative tropes for narrative inquiry that avoid both the representation of the participant’s voice (realism) and the impossibility of certainty (relativism). Narrative Productions imply taking into account the positionalities and the structural oppressions that intersect people’s lives while seeking to enable a space of political action inside the different fields in which narrative research is practiced.
We invite contributions that address (but not limited to):
1) Narrative research as a process of dialogical production of knowledge-based in co-construction.
2) Knowledge construction from feminist epistemological perspectives, taking into account the intersection of complexities that traverse narrative research.
3) Political responsibility in the process and outcomes of narrative research, as well as how this contributes to the broader project of emancipation and social justice.
4) Interrogate asymmetries of power in knowledge production inside narrative research.
5) Ethical and methodological limits of narrative research.
6) Narrative research as a way to bridge academia and civil society and contribute to further debate beyond the academic sphere.
