The Work of Storytelling

Screenshot 2018-05-09 09.46.05Hosted by the Transforming Creativity Research Group and MA Global Media Management, this symposium explores the working practices and dynamics that shape contemporary storytelling. In an age when lives are increasingly branded, gamified, and narrativized, how do our stories get created and communicated? What are the challenges of meaning-making across media? Focusing on digital media transformations, this symposium encourages discussions that interrogate the “work” (rather than the “art”) of storytelling by investigating themes including:

Entertainment industries

Representational politics

Production contexts

Collaborative authorship

Branding and marketing

Audiences and user generated content

Symposium presentations will take the form of 20-minute talks and performances.
