Expanded application and conclusion

BySoe Marlar Lwin

Chapter 6 makes an extension to the application of the contextualized multimodal framework by adopting it for studies of oral storytelling in relation to other areas or disciplines, such as (in)authenticity of stylistic features in oral storytelling discourse, oral storytelling for language and literacy education, and stories of (self)introduction for contextualizing and framing the identity construction. The chapter then acknowledges the limitations of the current framework, and offers suggestions for future research to probe further the efficacy of similar multimodal approaches by those who are interested in analysing narrative as live storytelling performances in different historical, cultural and sociopolitical contexts.
