An exploration of the nature, use, and practice of storytelling. The course encourages students to consider how various forms of narrative–from advertising, greeting cards, and political campaigns to films and rap music–convey stories and ideas; how oral, pictorial, and written narratives differ; and how medium affects narrative. Creative exercises in a range of media help students reflect on the many ways that a narrative can be manipulated and exploited, to powerful effect.
