Abstract: Narrative engagement is known to elicit positive attitude change toward a story’s subjects and to reduce stigma. Much research in the area of narrative persuasion however, tends to use only portions of complete narratives in stimulus materials and examines only a single medium in an of near ubiquitous multimedia story packaging. This study employed a 2 (narrative format, narrative or non-narrative) X 2 (medium, text or video) fully crossed factorial design to examine the role of narrative engagement, a multidimensional construct, on attitude and behavior change related to poverty. Findings indicate that two of the four subconcepts of narrative engagement were unrelated to attitude change and that attitude change was mediated by both affective and cognitive processes. Notably, narrative format lead to greater levels of blame on the poor but only through narrative engagement. Implications and directions for research are also provided.

Abstract: In exemplification research, the stimuli labeled as exemplars vary greatly across studies - ranging from a simple quote to a full-fledged story. Conversely, labels such as testimonial, anecdote or narrative are often used interchangeably. In narrative persuasion, we find similarly diverse operationalizations of what counts as a story. In this study, we conduct a meta-analysis of research in exemplification and narrative persuasion. The stimulus texts are re-analyzed according to their narrative elements that indicate a text’s “narrativity” (the degree of narrative richness). For example, narrativity is increased with the detail of the situation described in the text, the density of events and actions, the degree of experientiality (feelings, motivations, thoughts of characters), the concreteness of character information (name, sociodemographics) or the mode (distance and focalisation). The narrativity determined in the content analysis is then related to effect sizes found in the studies. Implications for conceptualizing “narrative” in media effects research are discussed.

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
