In this talk, Professor Alex Georgakopoulou of Kings College London will explore questions such as: what activities are viewed and branded as a story by apps, and with what semiotic and other facilities are they supported? Who is positioned as an ideal, creative, authentic storyteller? Why? And what is at stake for the users?
Professor Georgakopoulou draws on the project Life-writing of the moment: The sharing and updating self on social media’to explore networked narratives and small stories, followed by a discussion with by Dr Korina Giaxoglou and Dr Michael Humphrey.
