Given the growing attention to the language, content, and other particulars of texts used in the empirical study of the emotional effects of reading, it would be useful to have a list of narratives used in such study for consultation purposes. Since no such list exists yet, let us collaboratively create one!
I define “emotional effects of reading” very broadly, so that it includes any emotion, empathy, immersion/transportation, identification et cetera.
Please contribute to this Google Drive spreadsheet with the following details per narrative used:
- Title of the narrative
- Author of the narrative
- Type of narrative (e.g. short story, novel, non-fiction etc.)
- Publication Year
- Studies the narrative has been used in
- Any notes
If you have ideas for any additional columns to be added to the spreadsheet, do comment below.
