This is the second part of our conversation on narrative, identity and meaning in sport with Professor Kitrina Douglas. We explore the different stories that circulate in our sport culture and discuss how researchers can use arts-based methods to communicate their findings and make a difference in people's lives.
Kitrina Douglas is a Professor at the University of West London (UK), a Senior Research Fellow at Leeds Beckett University (UK), and a Visiting Professor at the University of Coimbra (Portugal). She has been one of the pioneers in the narrative study of athletes’ lives. Her narrative typology of performance, discovery and relational narratives of sport, developed together with Dr David Carless, has been a foundation for a number of studies that have followed.
Examples of Kitrina's numerous research articles on narrative, identity and sport include:
Challenging interpretive privilege in elite and professional sport: one [athlete’s] story, revised, reshaped and reclaimed
Living, resisting, and playing the part of athlete: Narrative tensions in elite sport
Kitrina has also had an important contribution to advancing arts-based and creative qualitative research methodologies. As you will hear in this episode, her work has been published in the form of films, documentaries, poems, songs, and stories.
