carnegieXchange - Narratives and marginalised voices: Storying the sport and physical education experiences of care experienced youth
carnegieXchange Seminar Existing research has failed to provide an opportunity for the stories of care-experienced youth to be heard, especially with regard to their perspectives on sport and physical education, and so our understanding of their experiences is limited.
This presentation will briefly reflect on a growing body of work and highlight the value of utilising narrative analysis and a storytelling approach to represent the voices of care-experienced youth. It draws together work over the past four years to showcase the novel, interactive methods used to engage with this hard to reach population (including the use of puppets and concept cartoons) before revealing the voices of care-experienced youth in the form of creative non-fiction vignettes. These stories foreground the success and challenges care-experienced youth encounter in accessing and engaging with sport and physical education and the meaning it plays in their daily lives.
