Stories Lives Tell

  • Inna Semetsky
Part of the Transgressions book series (TRANS, volume 64)


As noted by Maxine Greene in her Foreword to the remarkable book Stories Lives tell: Narrative and Dialogue in Education (Witherell and Noddings, 1991), from which the title of this chapter is taken, we can hear “the sounds of storytelling everywhere today. Narratives of many kinds are being opened and explored. Journal keeping goes on apace on all levels of learning: people write autobiographies, shape family histories, become authors of their own lives” (p. ix). Relating narratives specifically to “women’s ways of knowing” (Belenky, Clinchy, Goldberger, & Tarule, 1986), Greene situates them in classrooms and counseling centers alike.
