Storytelling Leadership: A Semiotics Theories Qualitative Inquiry into the Components Forming an Oral Story
Cater, Earl F.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
Using semiotics theories as a guide, the qualitative examination of storytelling literature and current storytelling practitioners provides research support for a list of storytelling components. Analysis of story building components discovered from literature in comparison to the results from research questionnaire responses by current storytellers confirms the existence of a historic list of regularities in storytelling practice. The analysis of current storytelling literature, narrative research literature, and historic Western European literature enables the development of five descriptive statements guiding the formation of a story. The comparison of the beliefs and practices of current storytellers to the five descriptive statements guiding the formation of a story provide a research method confirming regularities in storytelling practices across historic and ethnic boundaries. The resulting list of story components support the central research question. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
