A Narratable Self as Addressed by Human Rights
Adami, Rebecca
Policy Futures in Education, v15 n3 p252-261 Apr 2017
The paper extends the critique in earlier research of human rights as exclusive of otherness and difference by introducing the work of Adriana Cavarero (2000) on a "narratable self." Hence, the formation of human rights is thus about the relations between different narratable selves, not just Western ones. A narrative learning, drawing on Cavarero (2000), shifts the focus in human rights learning from learning "about" the other to exposing one's life story narrative through relationality.
