COMM 390 - Storytelling Across Media (3 credits)


This course examines strategies for effective storytelling in a variety of forms and media. Students explore the power of storytelling by producing stories with different cultural functions (e.g., to illuminate lesser known aspects of a given culture, to create awareness of a marginal culture, to inspire change or activism, etc.). Issues such as self-presentation, personal/communal identity, targeted audiences, societal/cultural contexts, and human agency are discussed. F, S, Su.
