Synopsis

This edited collection draws on a range of disciplines in exploring the central place of narrative in social inquiry and understanding the ethical life. It provides scholarly and practical insights into the rewards and potential pitfalls of working in, and with narrative. It offers readers a broad range of carefully considered examples; the use of art in enhancing insight into the plights of rural communities in Australia; the use of illness narratives in medical education; applying narratives of torture survivors and torturers in shaping humane political response and policy in the face of terrorism, and the place of the music, as a vehicle of story telling and moral growth. This volume illuminates the explicit links between the importance of narrative, that is, the telling of stories to create shape and meaning in our lives, and ethical engagement so critical to the achievement of a good life.

Eleanor Milligan is a Clinical Ethicist at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane and Senior Lecturer in Medical Ethics at Griffith University School of Medicine. She brings a broad multidisciplinary background in bioscience, education and philosophy to these roles. Some recent publications include "Creative, Expressive Encounters in Health Ethics Education: Teaching Ethics as Relational Engagement" (E. Milligan and E. J. Woodley) in Teaching and Learning in Medicine, volume 21, Issue 2 (2009) and "The Ethics of Prenatal and Genetic Screening" (E. Milligan, edited by N. Sunderland, P. Isaacs, P. Graham and B. McKenna) in Towards Humane Technologies: Biotechnology, New Media and Ethics (Sense Publishers, 2008). Emma Woodley has taught for many years in the School of Humanities and Human Services at QUT in the area of applied ethics and identity. She is also a Doctoral Candidate within the School. Her research explores perceptions of power and privilege and how these perceptions inform our frameworks of interpretation in negotiating our everyday lives. She uses feminist theory along with an engaged ethics approach to illuminate this work.
