Writing Artifacts as Narratives of Emotion
This manuscript will examine the role of emotion in writing through a comparative analysis of home-based written artifacts from children between the ages of 5 and 7 from seven families. We investigate how writing reflects the emotional context of the family that can function as a tool for the construction of narratives. The examination of writing through this perspective illustrates how the process of composing written artifacts reflects the synchronization and coordination of social and historical events imbued with emotions as told by the children’s written artifacts.
