#Shared_Narratives

Narrative can be conceived as the telling (in whatever medium, though especially language) of a series of temporal events in order to tell a meaningful story (Kerby 1991). Oftentimes a group of people share the same understanding of a series of events - sharing a common narrative. When thinking through #sharednarratives, think about the way in which you and those around you share the same ways of organizing, presenting and remembering information, and knowing the world. Technology also helps create (for better or for worse) a globalised shared narrative of a number of social concepts such as a shared understanding of the “good life,” of partnership, of family, or of the future itself.
