CMNS 419: Digital Storytelling

This new course explores a variety of storytelling frameworks and asks you to create your own story project. Stories—and the ability to tell them—are assuming a new primacy in contemporary culture, largely through socialmedia. Blogs, YouTube, Flickr, Wikipedia, Pinterest, Facebook, and are symptomatic of the popularization of personal narratives in digital media. Even as the nature of contemporary stories morph in their articulation into new forms as diverse as computer games, narrative medicine, and organizational storytelling, they remain as essential as breathing.
