Multimedia storytelling is nothing new. In this course we examine the history and structure of storytelling, from cave art to scrolls to illuminated manuscripts to opera to today’s burgeoning forms of electronic narrative, such as blogs, websites, ebooks, podcasts, and serials. As we establish a framework for storytelling in multimedia, students develop their own projects in the break-out discussion sections using the most up-to-date creative platforms. Faculty and guest editors, all working at the forefront of narrative arts, bring field-tested experience to our academic investigation and will help students at every stage of process. Guest lectures by New School faculty may include: Claire Potter, Heather Chaplin, Jim Miller, and Ben Katchor.

Students must register for both the lecture and discussion section of this course.
[This ULEC is in category 3, Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Arts and Humanities.]
