Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: McDowell, Felice

‘Author-Heroines and Autobiographical Acts at exhibitions of Sixties Fashion’, reflects upon her recent research into narratives of the ‘1960s Model Girl’ and in particular biographical narratives which have been instrumental in the curation and dissemination of fashion exhibits Biba and Beyond (Brighton Museum 2012) and Mary Quant (V&A 2019-2020).


Instrumental Narratives: Narrative Studies and the Storytelling Boom

The conference positions narrative scholars in the midst of the storytelling boom. Everyone is urged to share their story today, from consumers to multinational corporations, from private citizens to nation states. Storytelling consultants are thriving in today’s storytelling economy, but where are narrative scholars? Do the professional analyzers and theorizers of narrative have a say in the current storytelling boom? How to engage in a societal dialogue and debate as a narrative scholar?
