Storying journeys: Excursions conference, 2011

Hester Parr co-organised the interdisciplinary conference Excursions in Glasgow University, as a key vehicle for launching our experimental dissemination strategy around ‘storying’ missing people’s journeys.  The paper given was a ‘performative narration’ of a recomposed interview testimony. The key character was Sophie, and Sophie tells her story of her ‘missing journey’ (an attempted suicide). An academic narrator interprets Sophie, and police testimony is represented through interjecting voices offering information on usual spatial behaviour profiles.
