Description

Do you love stories, especially getting other folks to tell theirs? This one-credit digital media course will introduce you to conducting field research interviews in order to collect valuable stories. We will examine the art of interviewing and of storytelling, as we explore how to find a narrative arc to a story that may feel shapeless or rambling. Ultimately, we’ll be working to find and shape those stories that best represent the person doing the telling. We’ll think about how voice, inflection, pacing, and even background sounds can contribute to meaning.

Using Story Corps and other forms of ethnographic story collection as models, we will share drafts and conduct peer review of our rough cuts. Students will take an original photograph to accompany the collected story, and have the opportunity to contribute to an on-going campus story archive.

Course Requirements:

Students must attend synchronous lectures on Fridays via Zoom. All other class assignments will be posted through Canvas

Intended Audience:

Students interested in working with audio, engaged listening, finding stories, making things

Class Format:

The Instructor will record class sessions so that students can access asynchronously if they get ill. But since the class only meets once a week for seven weeks, students need to be there synchronously generally.
