2017 THEME: Storytelling as Research Method

What we call indigenous living story is declared a valid and reliable research method for Native Science (Cajete, 2000) and qualitative methods (Smith, 2007; Denzin & Lincoln, & SMith, 2008). Antenarrative has become an organizational research method (Rosile, Boje, Carlon, Downs, & Saylors, 2013). Antenarrative is acknowledge by Karl Weick (2012) as an method to develop prospective sensemaking as research method. Boje, Haley, and Saylors (2016) use antenarrative as research method to study Burger King strategic changes. Vaara and Tienari (2011) use atnatnarrative to research Nordic bank mergers. Boje, Svane and Gergerich (2016) look at narrative and counternarrative in relation to antennarratives in research with veterans and in mergers and acquisitions. B├╝low and Boje do antenarrative analysis of the purge of humanities, and negotiations of survivors in Denmark higher education. Svane, Gergerwich and Boje (2016) use antenarrative to research organizing fractals. Then there is our conference work in Being Quantum in our storytelling methods (Boje, 2014; Boje & Henderson, 2014).

Clearly storytelling as research methods is a growing movement across many social science disciplines.

DAY ONE highlights: 7th Quantum Storytelling Conference self-organized into 4 Experimental 'QUANTUM STORYTELLING' Groups proposed by Professor Grace Ann Rosile

Because art objects are materially expressive, they are a kind of quantum storytelling. Here we have one of four experiments done at the Quantum Storytelling Conference. We make a Quantum Storytelling Argument. The proposition: art objects are materially expressive is asserted as premiss. Our proposition: they are a kind of quantum storytelling is asserted to be true. We did four experiments: collaborative painting, sequential painting, collage art, and wire sculpture.
