This chapter draws on Digital Storytelling (DS), a process that allows research participants to tell their stories in their own words through a guided creative workshop that includes the use of digital technology, participatory approaches, and co-production of personal stories. As such, it is a method devised for bridging the gap between theory and experience and can be considered a social practice as well as a research method. During a workshop with migrant women, DS enabled all research participants to express personal truths that are worked on using technologies of telling, listening to each other's stories, writing, and giving each other comments and feedback within the group. In this chapter, DS is interpreted as embodied feminist research as it draws on repertoires of co-production that are typical of feminist activism and research.

Keywords:   Digital Storytelling, personal stories, research participants, embodied feminist research, feminist activism
