Master and Counternarrative Dynamics

Sara Cobb

Master and Counternarrative Dynamics Conflicts everywhere involve a struggle over meaning, a struggle by a master narrative to maintain its primacy, as counternarratives work to unseat or destabilize them. This dynamic takes place in the context of the fight against extremism, as well as the struggle over policies, such as gun control. Understanding these dynamics is the first step in the design and development of effective counternarratives which could actually function to thicken or alter master narratives.
