AbstractHow should we write our research? ... the question reflects a central postmodernist realization: all knowledge is socially constructed. Writing is not a 'true' representation of an objective 'reality'; instead, language creates a particular view of reality. ... All social scientific writing depends upon narrative structure and narrative devices, although that structure and those devices are frequently masked by a 'scientific' frame, which is, itself, a metanarrative (c.f. Lyotard, 1979). ... Can we construct a sociology in which narrated lives replace the narrative of unseen, atemporal, abstract 'social forces'? (Laurel Richardson, 1997, pp. 26-27)
