  4. 4. Voicing<br />Human beings can give an account of themselves and of their place in the world. <br />“We have no idea what a culture would be where no one any longer knew what it meant to narrate things” (Paul Ricoeur)<br />We give meaning to our world and our existence, this is what makes us human (c.q. Freire): treating people as they lack that capacity is to treat them as if they were not human <br />Voice is a word for that capacity (a manifestation of the active agency of humans)<br />Voice is necessary: we have a desire to narrate, a desire to make sense of our lives.<br />Voice is not enough, we need to know that voice matters. <br />The offer of effective voice is crucial to the legitimacy of modern democracies.<br />
  5. 5. Voice as a process<br />The process of giving an account of one’s life and conditions <br />‘Giving an account of one’s life’ (Judith Butler, 2005): narrative is the basic feature of human action. As Charles Taylor (1986) puts it: “man is self-interpreting animal”<br />Voice is socially grounded: voice is not the practice of individuals in isolation. Our stories are entwined, and our individual story gets contextualized in the stories of others. <br />
  6. 6. Voice as a process (2)<br />Voice is a form of reflexive agency. The act of voice involves taking responsibility for the stories one tells. <br />Both listening and speaking<br />
  7. 7. Cycle of action-learning (Freire, 1970)<br />
