Narrative Matters 2016 Conference

RRU Staff

Stories are a primary part of the human experience and how we relate to one another. Narrative research taps into the power of stories to reveal new insights, engage others, create new community understandings of the history and visions of what people and communities want to become.

The Narrative Matters 2016 Conference brings together narrative researchers and practitioners from disciplines across the arts and humanities, social sciences, professions, Indigenous communities and others.

A collaborative effort between Royal Roads University and the University of Victoria, the conference is co-chaired by Brigitte Harris, acting dean of Royal Roads’ Faculty of Social and Applied Sciences and Catherine Althaus-Kaefer of UVic’s School of Public Administration.

The Narrative Matters conference 2016 runs June 20 to 23 at the Victoria Conference Centre. This biennial international conference was held in Paris in 2012 and 2014, but it originated in Canada.
