Our interest in stories and storytelling is anthropological. We tell stories to reveal the logics of certain cultural codes and complexities of social interactions. Anthropological storytelling is not limited into the discipline of anthropology but it is a trans/interdisciplinary approach based in ethnography and fieldworking. Our act of storytelling is theoretically driven, methodologically conscious and structurally clear. We ask our students to narrate stories not through opinions, sensationalism and empty poetry. They learn how to frame arguments into the stories by considering two elements: (1) Theory (2) Positionality.
We recommend this reading to understand the power of storytelling:
