Abstract

Narrative is changing globally. Stories, genres, and languages themselves shift. The relevance of such change to psychological anthropology may be clearest vis-à-vis emotional genres like lament, but new communicative forms are shaping shared subjectivities - widely shared identities. These shifts putatively reflect a grand narrative, the meta-story we call modernity. A limited version of this claim is embraced, based on evidence that newer forms of narrative participation can fit the so-called age of the spectacle.
