Episode One: How to story a book with Rachel Thomson

In this first episode of Narrative Now we explore how to story a book. Working with narrative data provides a wealth of opportunities but also presents the challenge of choosing what or which parts of the stories to focus on and how to curate this story. Storying a book based on narrative data also poses ethical questions around ownership and audience. Ultimately, in this episode we ask which stories are ‘good stories’?

Our guest in this episode is Rachel Thomson, Professor of Sociology at Sussex University in the UK.
