Research output: Book/reportAnthologyResearchpeer-review


The Routledge Handbook of Counter-Narratives is a landmark volume providing students, university lecturers, and practitioners with a comprehensive and structured guide to the major topics and trends of research on counter-narratives. The concept of counter-narratives covers resistance and opposition as told and framed by individuals. Counter-narratives are stories impacting on social settings, that stand opposed to dominant and powerful master-narratives. In sum, the contributions in this handbook survey how counter-narratives unfold power to shape and change various fields. Fields investigated in this handbook are organizations and professional settings, struggles and concepts of identity and belonging, the political field, as well as literature and ideology. The handbook is framed by a comprehensive introduction as well as clear-cut summary provided by editors Marianne Lundholt and Klarissa Lueg. The handbook’s direct and clear appeal will support university learning and prompt both students and researchers to further investigate the arena of narrative research.
