The Work of Storytelling

Hosted with the Transforming Creativity Research Group, this year’s GMM annual 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

Please see the symposium website for further details on the programme and speakers.
