Abstract:

In Curated Stories, Sujatha Fernandes considers the rise of storytelling alongside the broader shift toward neoliberal, free-market economies to argue that stories have been reconfigured to promote entrepreneurial self-making and restructured as digestible soundbites. Fernandes uses stories from legal proceedings, empowerment workshops, and political campaigns to show how the conditions under which the stories are told, the tropes through which they arenarrated, and the ways in which they are responded to can disguise the deeper contexts of global inequality. Not just a critical examination of contemporary use of narrative, Curated Stories also explores how storytelling might be reclaimed to allow for the pursuit of transformative social change.
