The Narrative Research SIG (Special Interest Group) of AERA is dedicated to supporting conversations about the place of narratives in educational research including but not limited to phenomenological, literary, critical, and performance conceptions of narrative analysis.

The purpose of the Narrative Research SIG is to provide a forum for the exchange of information among individuals interested in informing/rethinking narrative research through a variety of narrative research studies in/with participants in a variety of educational settings.
