Writings of Lions: Narrative Inquiry of a Kenyan Couple Living in the U.S.
Gilmore, Miranda; Miller, Marianne McInnes
Qualitative Report, v18 Article 8 2013
In this study, we told the story of a Kenyan couple, B. and F., who has left Kenya and moved to Southern California. We followed a narrative inquiry framework, using Clandinin and Connelly's (2000) guidelines. We delineated core components of narrative inquiry research, as well as related the journey of B. and F., who have created dual lives in both Kenya and the United States. As part of the interpretive analysis process, we integrated the first author's experiences, both in interviewing the couple and in volunteering in Kenya in previous years. The final product is an intersection of Kenyan and American life that weaves back-and-forth between B. and F.'s and the first author's chronicle, and between the past and the present.
