Storytelling as Research Praxis, and Conversations that Enabled It to Emerge
de Carteret, Phoenix
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v21 n3 p235-249 May 2008
This paper introduces conversations and stories that were central to my PhD research. Journal writing, poetry, story and transcribed conversations became texts and data I reproduced in response to the research questions, dreams, memory work and collective biography workshops with my participants. The paper rechoreographs the process that enabled storytelling to emerge as a method of inquiry and a mode of representing the research. Crucial to the process was the supervisory relationship wherein my supervisor modeled a decolonizing pedagogical practice that held uncertainty in chrysalis while the methodology emerged.
