This subject explores the nature and history of creative storytelling in different contexts, tracing how cultures tell and interpret stories. Students learn how narratives exist within situated traditions, inflected by gendered, as well as by Indigenous, diasporic, refugee, and settler positions. They also examine the ways in which certain material and technological contexts establish conditions and possibilities for creative storytelling. In the course of the subject, students will be invited to both interpret and create narratives, reflecting on them in terms of their own cultural, historic and material positioning, with a view to understanding how a multilayered and multicultural society affords powerful opportunities for creative storytelling.
