Narrative and Conflict: Explorations in Theory and Practice
Narrative and conflict seeks to elaborate narrative perspectives of conflict resolution and conflict analysis. The premise of this perspective is the idea that stories are corporeal and interactive. They are more than reports of what is happening; how they are produced, circulated or circumvented gives shape to what people do. In addition, conflict resolution analyses and practices focused on intentionally facilitating shifts in the available narratives have the possibility to shift relationships between people or groups of people. Narrative and conflict publishes articles on conflict resolution and conflict analysis at local, national and international levels.
Narrative and conflict emerged out of conversations between its founding editors, Sara Cobb and John Winslade, and grew out of an earlier journal on narrative practice in general, called Explorations, which was published by the Dulwich Centre in Adelaide, Australia under the publishing oversight of Cheryl White. It included a focus on a range of fields of practice, including narrative therapy and narrative conflict resolution. Narrative and Conflict owes a debt to Cheryl White and to the Dulwich Centre, as well as to the legacy of the work done in family therapy and community work by Michael White.
