Narrativity in Action: Language, Culture and Text


Magdalena Grabowska, Grzegorz Grzegorczyk and Piotr Kallas

This monograph highlights the significance of narrative tools for the analysis of language behaviour in various social situations and considers narrativity as a natural human way of making sense. Through narration we develop unique modes of comprehending reality and dealing with its complicated structure. The analysis elaborates narrating as a dialogical experience and highlights its important role in coaching and in personalised education. Additionally it throws light on the modern city narrative as a literary genre. Lastly the authors develop the aspects of narrativity in the act of conversion in evangelical churches as an instance of identity enactment explaining the modern trends in preaching in charismatic evangelical churches.

Narrativity and Language in Personalized Education (Grzegorz Grzegorczyk)

Narrativity and Language in Personalized Education

Abstract: Personalised education means all forms of tutoring, coaching, mentoring or instructing where the dyadic educator-student alignment is shaped in the form of a dialogue based on languaging. Communication is understood here as talk-in-interaction in which narratives form a natural substrate. Through narratives we manage to strike a bond between two interactants who become able to listen to each other’s “stories”.

Key words: communication, education, language narrative, talk-in-interaction
