About this event

Online Book Launches for “Making sense of stories: An Inquirer’s Compendium”

Andrew Rixon and Geof Hill are pleased to announce the release and launch of Making Sense of Stories: An Inquirer’s Compendium. This book, a companion to The Story Cookbook: Practical Recipes for Change (Rixon and Lloyd, 2019), provides a compendium of the varied and different ways stories can be analysed in research and inquiry.

Drawing from a range of disciplines such as psychology, sociology and literature studies, this book is an invaluable guide for the researcher keen to use storytelling as inquiry. The 29 chapters provide an array of ways to analyse stories including Juxtaposition, Circumambulation, Strengths-analysis, Grounded theory and thematic analysis approaches.

To celebrate the release of this new book - Geof Hill and Andrew Rixon will be hosting a special series of book launches. Please see below the schedule for the online book launches and associated special speakers who are contributors from the book. A zoom link will be provided for registrants.
