The study of narrative is no longer a literary preserve, but has emerged as an object of enquiry in a whole range of disciplinary contexts, from sociolinguistics to social anthropology, social psychology and beyond. This is because narrative does not exist only between the covers of books; on the contrary, stories have a pervasive role in our everyday life. From the proliferation of data that sociolinguists and others have gathered from many different contexts, we have ample evidence of just how central narrative discourse is to the fabric of social interaction – whether this is in casual conversations, in legal and medical settings, in the media, in family interactions or at school. So there is no longer much need, at the turn of this new century, to argue the case for the increasing importance of narrative within the social sciences.
