Narrative research enables you to explore the meanings of human action and phenomena constructed in narratives. Narrative as a concept combines stories and narration. Your narrative research strategy will focus on the types of stories told about the researched phenomenon and on the type of story in culture and society which presents the phenomenon. The starting point in your strategy is the idea of language and language use as a primary element in the construction of meanings.
