Part of the Digital Storytelling: Theory, Practice, Pedagogy Series.

This event series draws together expressive digital technologies and traditional humanist areas of expertise. Amid talk about how entering a “digital age” changes what it means to be human, this series encourages us to ask and answer: how do digital technologies change us by changing our stories?

It is presented in conjunction with the Year of the Humanities in the University and sponsored by the Department of English, the Humanities Center, the Program in Composition: Literacy, Pedagogy, and Rhetoric, the Film Studies Program, the English Department Digital Media Lab, and the Smith Fund for Children's Library Services (School of Information Sciences).
