Critical storytellers provoke readers to acknowledge and question different perspectives. Critical storytelling questions unquestioned norms and assumptions. It exposes oppression in its various forms, such as violence, sexism, racism, bullying, exploitation, marginalization, dehumanization, and cultural imperialism. These passionate narrators have the guts to think, act, and question, vulnerably. Storytelling, when it's critical, is inclusive. It doubts common sense. It questions the status quo. It tears down regimes of domination. It envisions possibilities for change. Critical storytellers rely on various media and methods. Their stories are critical of metanarratives that are exclusionary and divisive. Critical storytellers voice silences and offer new narratives in their creative work. The Critical Storytelling book series will include diverse storytelling methods, theoretical approaches, and narrative frameworks. We invite collaborative books, edited, and authored, as well as individually written projects. Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by e-mail to Assistant Editor Evelien van der Veer.
