This chapter presents a summary of key principles of narrative analysis to then describe convergences with sensemaking theory. Both sensemaking and existing approaches to narrative analysis are more or less mute on emotions. The chapter develops a narrative conception of emotions and explores how this can help us trace emotions in narrative interview texts. A constitutive feature of narratives is temporality. Narrative analysis essentially dissects the narrative structure of the interview text. Stories are made up of a series of discrete narrative segments. A methodology of narrative emotion analysis can fruitfully build on this conception of emotion. There is a broad array of specific analytical perspectives in narrative analysis ranging from the structure of single segments to an overarching focus on the entire narrative or larger parts of it. Employing mainly linguistic (and some cognate) research will help elaborate narrative analysis as an empirical technique for the study of emotions.
