Centre for Narrative Research



Welcome to the Centre for Narrative Research

Molly Andrews at 'Narrative and Social Change', BPS, December 2007

The Centre for Narrative Research (CNR) is the leading international centre for narrative work in the social sciences. CNR aims to generate and develop innovative narrative research of all kinds, and to bring narrative researchers from all over the world into productive dialogue.

CNR draws on narrative research from across the social sciences and beyond. It is founded in interdisciplinarity; it includes researchers from psychological, sociological, anthropological, cultural and media studies, humanities, arts and performance research traditions. The Centre supports research on spoken, written and visual narratives. It fosters collaborations between its members, associates and advisors, and provides a forum for researchers in applied and policy settings, as well as academics and graduate students.

The Centre is open to all kinds of narrative researchers, whatever their theoretical and methodological backgrounds. At the same time, CNR's work is distinguished, first, by its commitment to narrative complexity - to studying the contradictions, incoherences and omissions in narratives, as well as narrative sensemaking - and second, by its explorations of relationships between personal narratives and the social world.
