This review explores work on narratives, focusing on discursive or conversational approaches to narratives as social action. In contrast to analyses of narrative structure, a focus on narration also involves the conversational work of narrators and their co-participants. In institutional contexts, narratives-in-interaction invoke two types of identities, the selves of the narrators, on the one hand, and storyteller positions, on the other, including participation frameworks and the affective and epistemic stances of participants who engage in specific types of actions, such as confessing, complaining, formulating accusations or mobilizing justifications or other defensive accounts.
