Transformational Storytelling

Transformational Storytelling

This research focuses on the creation of story as this crosses and/or recombines traditional and emergent media and disciplines and publics in ways designed to significantly transform their understanding, behavior, interaction, movement, affective and interpersonal relationality, geographies, or other aspects of day-today living. Whether it is through story gathering events in which participants create and share short video archives, through alternative reality games, through narrative therapy or medical humanities practices, story performances focused on community-building, or story project with K-12 teachers and their students, these projects aim to engage people in order to creatively, analytically, experimentally, physically, sonically, or tactically interrogate and change the ‘stories we live by.’
