In Research and tagged ethnographyfan studiesguidesmethodsnarrative identityoriginal researchperformancesocialstoryworldstheory This is part of a series that draws on ethnographic fieldwork with anime fans. I document how anime fans use anime-specific narrative resources such as archetypes, icons, and language to shape their personal identity narratives and perform those identities to both anime fans and non-anime fans.
Stories are part of humanity, and have been ever since, and probably before, humankind took to speech. To what extend do people use narrative to build their personal identities? In more recent years, Charlotte Linde, an anthropologist, theorizes about the use of narrative as a sense making structure and story as a resource for identity management during her ethnography of an American Insurance Company ; Linde details how incoming employees use stories from training materials and social settings The influence of storytelling archetypes in mold their own identity and guide their behavior in the workplace.
James Wertsch, an anthropologist from Washington University in St. Indeed, the study of illness narrative inside medical anthropology suggests that narratives can be used to, among other things: So, it can be asserted that narratives are instrumental in creating, shaping, and projecting or performing identity.
Narrative is the central sense-making structure that allows human beings to arrange, categorize and present symbolic ideas. To earlier generations of social scientists, the narrative was merely one of many forms of representation.
Narrative is built in the same way story is: So our working definition of identity is the socially constructed, socially maintained, and socially transformed meanings a person attributes to himself or herself Berger ; Burke These definitions come together in the theory of narrative identity which we described earlier as the interplay between narratives and social identity construction in which individuals incorporate elements from narratives fictionalized, social, and others into their personal identity narrative and attempt to project this identity narrative by way of a performative identity.
The triad of narrative identity is an analytical framework that is used to analyze narrative identity by describing the connectedness between the shaping and projecting of narrative identity using narrative resources. Narrative resources are narrative elements that provide symbolic points of reference, context, and content for fashioning identity and for performing identity.
Perhaps the most resonant archetype that inspires the telling of stories is that of the 'Hero'. That aspect of character is defined as being courageous in the face of adversity and taking action with a moral intent to defend and protect another person or group. Perhaps the most resonant archetype that inspires the telling of stories is that of the 'Hero'. That aspect of character is defined as being courageous in the face of adversity and taking action with a moral intent to defend and protect another person or group. storytelling and narrative creation employ the left frontal cortex, which is the detail and structure oriented portion of the brain. The act of and participation in storytelling seeks.
These three aspects work in concert together: This works in a procedural way: They do not have the exact same set, and both interpret these symbols differently.
The actor uses these shared resources to cobble together a personal identity narrative. Who do I want others to know I am?
The performance is the observable interaction projected by the actor. The audience relies on the shared narrative resources for audience interpretation. This creates the perceived self, or perception of the actor.
This is who the audience thinks the actor is. The audience provides feedback, both intentionally and unintentionally. That feedback influences the performance, which influences the performative identity, which can ultimately influence the personal identity narrative.
Consider this simple example: Jerry is a football fan. His personal identity narrative is, therefore, informed by narrative resources that may include sports narratives, sports jargon and personal experiences. Jerry also performs this identity in order to situate himself as an athlete among his circle of friends.
In order to communicate this, he again draws on narrative resources. In this case, those resources may be a brand of clothing that carries symbolic weight and that the group understands to point towards athletes.
He may also adopt enact certain gestures and language that have been made popular by celebrity athletes. The audience individuals in his circle of friends sees these performance features and associates Jerry with athletics, therefore perceiving him as an athlete.
Going forward, I will attempt to walk a three-sided line. First and foremost, I will strive to enable anime fans to share their own voices through their own interviews, interpretations, and performances. The second line is an attempt to create an analytical framework for investigating the theory of narrative identity.
This framework will help us draw conclusions about the form and substance of narrative identity in social contexts.
This is a test, and it may be that the framework is insufficient or plain faulty. The third line is to fit this work in with the larger question of stories for education, identity management, and transformation.
I will discuss some applied approaches and further directions for research of this type. The next post in this series is a brief introduction to anime.Perhaps the most resonant archetype that inspires the telling of stories is that of the 'Hero'.

About the Author. Victoria Hooper Victoria Hooper is a writer and editor living in Nottingham, UK. She’s a huge fan of all things fantasy, science-fiction, speculative, paranormal, magical, weird, mythical, and alternate history, as well as anything Ancient Greek or Roman. Brand storytelling through seven archetypes Brand stories are nothing new. What’s new is the challenge to communicate the same narratives across an ever-evolving media landscape (e.g., new devices, multiscreens, changing consumption behaviors, changing demographics, etc.). "The Lab shone a light on how important the classic aspects of storytelling are to interactive and non-linear storytelling, because despite the advances in technology, format and distribution, one thing has remained unchanged: The human psyche and its Jungian archetypes of character and narrative.
It is taught through story telling, myth, legend, religion. An archetype (a sort of prototype) is an unlearned tendency in humans. The archetype has no form of its own, but acts as an "organizing principle" on the things we see or do.
Increase the impact and influence of your data presentations and reports. Unlock the story from data The ability to extract meaning from data and communicate insights through storytelling is a highly valuable skill.
