Social scientists have fruitfully borrowed narrative from the humanities. Yet, because scholars working with narrative rarely engage each other across the disciplinary divide, both sides miss out on the generative nature of interdisciplinary conversations. Our Workshop on Narrative Theory and Methods addresses this problem by bringing together graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty in the social sciences and humanities to engage the general topic of "what is narrative?" in tandem with more specific topics originating in the research projects of Workshop members (e.g., narrative and ideology, narrative analysis of interviews, and pastoralism in narratives).
