The following two papers outline the main thrusts of my research. The first paper (2009) deals with the analysis of sets of stories to produce higher-order narrative structures similar to those produced by Vladimir Propp in the 1920's. The second paper (2008) treats the data collection apparatus necessary for the analysis work to proceed.
