Abstract:In this particular community of practice life story fragments played an active role in the development of "community" and in the ability of fellows to engage in effective cross-disciplinary dialogue. Stories-on-the-fly grounded academic subject matter in the lives of the fellows, and often provided a way into the intellectual heart of the matter. In addition, these stories played an important role in the "whole life" ethos of the institute. Over the course of the year these regularly occurring stories came together to create a larger story, one that began to resist constraints on the "possible lives" (Bruner 1987) available in this culture.
