NARRATIVE PRACTICES OF SENSE-MAKING:
Embodied and Situated Framework
In the analysis of narratives, how can we revise, or re-think the notions of forms, structures, or patterns of meaning typically constrained by linguistic ideas or cognitive approaches to narrative comprehension, as embodied and situated? What are the aspects that define narrative meaning-making as a) embodied, b) embedded in the content, c) enacted with perceptual capacities, and d) extended to socially defined narrative engagement? When defining narrative as embodied, what are the aspects that translate the social body into making sense of narratives?
