Please join us for a 'between semester' seminar this week.
Presenter: Dr Earl Livings
Abstract for 'One Take on Narrative'
IDG Seminar, 22 June 2007
The American cognitive psychologist Jerome Bruner identifies narrative
as a key feature in how humans relate to and even construct the world:
'Narrative imitates life, life imitates narrative'. This talk will
discuss theories, functions and elements of narrative as used in formal
and informal domains.
Earl Livings is a former mathematician who now lives as a poet, fiction
writer, editor, and teacher of creative and professional writing. He
will detail how narrative operates within his activities and suggest
parallels for possible application in design methodologies for emerging
Information and Communication Technologies.
The seminar will be held in IDEA Lab, Level 4 of the ICT Building.
111 Barry Street, Carlton.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
