The Future of Storytelling
The enduring power of storytelling is undeniable and the printed book has proved resilient, even in the face of digitization and the global pandemic. So what does the future have in store for reading, storytelling and the ‘text’ in a world where visual media is increasingly dominant? How do advances in digitization change the way we read and experience texts? And how does this change the way that books and other kinds of textual media are made?
Our esteemed panellists will draw on their own research projects to explore these questions to demonstrate how important research from across the humanities is in shaping our understanding of the past, present and future of our cultural heritage and production.
There will be a drinks reception and audience questions will be invited at the end of the panel.
Chair: Dr Shafquat Towheed, the Open University
Speakers: Professor Kate Pullinger, Bath Spa University and Professor Roger Sabin, Central St Martins, University of the Arts London.
A Q&A and drinks reception will follow.
