"Narrative Argumentation: Regarding Narrative as Argument and the Resulting Need for Developing Narrative Literacy Skills" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, Nov 20, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-01-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p256258_index.html>

Abstract: Some communication studies scholars have extolled the virtues of narrative ways of knowing, while denying that narrative is a form of argumentation (e.g., Bochner, 1994; Bruner, 1996, 2002a; Gergen & Gergen, 2006; Pellegrino, 1977). In response, the present article first builds the case that narrative is a form of argumentation. Next, suggestions are made for the development of narrative literacy skills to expose potentially fallacious reasoning and encourage critical consumption of narrative argumentation.

Abstract: The author argues for a clearer analytic stance vis-à-vis narratives as the basic unit of analysis. In order to clarify this claim, I will focus on three areas of increasing confusion: The first is the gray zone between life, experience and narration: While the analysis of stories calls for the analysis of the interactional context in which stories are occasioned, this shift toward contextualized narrative practices runs the risk of becoming misunderstood as a leveling of narratives with ‘life’ and ‘identity,’ A second confusion arises when narrative inquiry enters the life world of research participants: Our original interest in narratives as representations of the life world and subjective experience of others does not require the boundaries between researcher and others to be leveled and power differentials disappear. Third, engaging in narrative inquiry does not turn researchers into story-tellers. for a clearer analytic stance vis-a-vis narratives as the basic unit of analysis. In order to clarify this claim, I will focus on three areas

Abstract: The concept of narrativity serves as a framework to identify possible textual factors that enhance narrative engagement and learning processes in narrative news. Narrativity indicates the richness of a story and the quality, which makes it a good and interesting story. It avoids the dichotomy of narrative versus non-narrative. In the study, we test three types of narrativity factors (related to character interaction, narrative structure and narrative discourse) against a non-narrative condition. In an experiment using a cross-sectional sample (n=312) we found that the structure version was superior for fact learning than the other two narrative versions, and comparable to the non-narrative news report. All narrative versions enhanced the perception of the experiential quality of the text, while the non-narrative version enhanced the perception of the information quality. Narrative engagement mediated the relationships between narrativity of the text and learning as well as both experiential and information quality.

"Transmedia Narrative Elements in the Universe of Batman, From Comics to Movies to Videogames; or How Intelligible and Interactive Narratives Create Convergence and Linear Narratives" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 66th Annual Conference, Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk, Fukuoka, Japan, Jun 09, 2016 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-01-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1099903_index.html>

Abstract: The term transmedia was initially used by Marsha Kinder (1991:40) to refer to the intertextuality among films, animation, TV series and toys for children. Henry Jenkins also participated with a chapter on that publication that he later on developed farther as the term “narrative transmedia” on Media Convergence (2006) and more recently on http://henryjenkins.org (2007, 2011,2013). The present research analyzes the application of narrative elements and media characteristics used for generating independent, edutainment transmedia products, and an analysis of the Batman’s universe generated by its comics, films, webs, fans video, and videogames. The goal was to develop a transmedia original model of analysis to study and conclude how the narrative elements of the actions, characters, spaces and times are converged with coherence and intelligibility to generate the Batman Universe; and how they engage the fans to generate emerging linear and circular interactive narratives.
