Narrative analysis in the human sciences refers to a family of approaches to\ud diverse kinds of texts, which have in common a storied form. As nations and\ud governments construct preferred narratives about history, so do social\ud movements, organisations, scientists, other professionals, ethnic/racial groups,\ud and individuals in stories of experience. What makes such diverse texts\ud “narrative” is sequence and consequence: events are selected, organised,\ud connected, and evaluated as meaningful for a particular audience. Storytellers\ud interpret the world and experience in it; they sometimes create moral tales –\ud how the world should be. Narratives represent storied ways of knowing and\ud communicating (Hinchman and Hinchman, 1997). I focus here on oral\ud narratives of personal experience
