Call for Papers: Interactive Narratives, New Media and Social Engagement
October 24–25, 2014 University of Toronto
An interdisciplinary conference for researchers and practitioners
The call for papers has been extended, so you still have time to send your abstract.
How has the digital screen changed our world in general and narrative and visual arts in particular is the broad focus of the second Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Toronto and BRAFFTV Film and Media international Conference.
We are interested, for instance, in the evolution of narrative practices from text-based literature to the advent of the digital revolution as storytelling moves from literacy to so-called post-literacy.
The prevalence of new interactive digital narrative in all areas from games, to literature, to films, to video art has resulted in new forms of storytelling and, accordingly, provoked new practices of reading that transforms readers/viewers into active collaborators.
