Narrative Project Guidelines and Objectives


Thus in a storied world…things do not exist, they occur. Where things meet, occurrences intertwine, as each becomes bound up in the other’s story. Every such binding is a place or topic. It is in this binding that knowledge is generated. To know someone or something is to know their story, and to be able to join that story to one’s own. (Tim Ingold 161-62)



The narrative project is designed to encourage students to see assigned readings as part of a meshwork that includes their own stories. The project is also designed to help students think about their own subject positions (situated perspectives) in relation to the course material.

Students will write a story that demonstrates their situated perspective (frame of reference).


Students will also write an “Artist’s Statement,” which demonstrates the student’s understanding of the following question: Why is it important to recognize and acknowledge the perspective of the reader/listener in a course that studies close analysis of textual material?



The Written Narrative can be a family story (with permission), or it can be something the student has experienced.


The student will avoid the following:


  • Appropriating voice.
  • Disclosing someone else’s hightly personal information.
  • Making generalizations.
  • Retelling the plot of a novel or film.



Please type and print the story. No handwritten assignments.                Grading Rubric for Narrative Project
