School of Consciousness and Transformation TSD 6660 3.00
The course follows the premise that stories are pivotal in constructing and expressing one's personal, cultural and transformative experiences. We will explore the philosophical and methodological foundations for the conduct of narrative research. Students will gain basic skills in narrative research by conducting a small pilot study that includes collecting, analyzing and interpreting personal narratives. Contemporary views of narratives, including arts-based approaches, will be discussed in relation to students’ topics of inquiry.
