Resumé

Fortællingsanalyse for historikere

Formålet med denne artikel er at vise og diskutere, hvordan fortællingsanalyse kan anvendes til besvarelse af historiske problemstillinger. Historikeres brug af fortællingsbegrebet er åbenlyst ikke nogen ny idé, men denne artikel bidrager med konkretiseringen af en række analytiske redskaber, som kan hjælpe udviklingen yderligere på vej. Med afsæt i en kombination af narratologi og kognitionsstudier fokuseres på fortællingers performativitet og dynamikken mellem samfundsprocesser og fortællinger om dem. Herfra udvikles to, gensidigt afhængige, analytiske greb. Det første er en skelnen mellem tre niveauer – tekst, historie, fortælling – hvor relationerne mellem niveauerne og de kontekster, de refererer til, bruges til en præcisering af fortællingsanalysens temporalitet og performativitet og til en operationalisering i en konkret analyse. Med det andet analytiske greb konkretiseres fortællingsstrukturen, dens grundlæggende komponenter og relationerne mellem dem. De to analytiske greb eksemplificeres i forbindelse med et studie af fortællingen om Texas i begyndelsen af 1900-tallet med særlig fokus på etniske fællesskaber og magtforhold.
