Narrative theory and educational inquiry: qualitative research as metafictional storytelling

Year: 1993

Author: Gough, Noel

Type of paper: Abstract refereed

This paper provides a rationale for speculating about and experimenting with metafictional storytelling as a form of qualitative educational research. The presentation for which it has been prepared will also include examples of fictions produced by graduate students which cannot be reproduced here because (i) some are still in transit from Canada at the time of writing (late September 1993) and (ii) some are visual 'texts' that are difficult to re/present satisfactorily in print.
