Who Ate My Heart? Storytelling and Emotion
This chapter discusses ways in which emotions arose and were negotiated during and after storytelling. Emotions arose in five ways: through storyteller performance, the performer-audience relationship; as students discussed emotions in the stories; when students compared personal emotional experience, and during group conflict. I introduce Arlie Hochschild’s concept of emotional labour/management, which has not been linked to storytelling before and rarely to young people. I then connect Hochschild to emotions in the storytelling space. Using storytelling methods suggests that the management of emotions through emotional labour played an important social role during group discussion. Storytelling has value as a way of encouraging the discussion of emotions in the classroom while providing an enjoyable experience.
