Plats
Zoom

The seminar will be split in two parts: a) Theoretical; b) Practical

a) Theoretical
Based on the Toronto School of communication (and my books on the topic), I would like to discuss the idea of performative storytelling as a humanistic tool to explore complex realities (including digital ones, of course).

b) Practical
Based on the tetrad model/four laws of media (McLuhan), I would like to experiment performative storytelling with the seminar, encouraging them to develop storytelling and create/develop stories/critical thinking.


Elena Lamberti is a specialist of Modernist Literature, Cultural Memory, Literature and Media Ecology. The author of the award winning Marshall McLuhan’s Mosaic. Probing the Literary Origins of Media Studies (2012), she serves in a variety of editorial boards including Explorations in Media Ecology (EME); Wi: Journal of Mobile Media; and The International Journal of McLuhan Studies. She also leads the international project WeTell – Storytelling & Civic Awareness, which in a ”post-digital society” explores ”new skills to navigate the complexity of a multi-media environment that affects people’s individual/collective identities.”
