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. 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 have the opportunity to contribute to an on-going campus story archive.

Course Requirements:

project-based, participation in class discussions, collaborative work, peer review and workshops

Intended Audience:

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

Class Format:

Experiment and making-centered course; discussion format; collaborative; open lab, sharing knowledge and skills; feedback and workshop
