I’m recently back from beautiful Zakynthos, Greece where I presented two papers at the international digital storytelling conference. The first, “Rewind: Unpacking the Media Ecology of Today’s University Students,” was co-authored with former student and now Assistant Professor Amanda Hill. For this paper, we analyzed nearly 50 digital stories that had been created as part of the I am UCF digital storytelling project (iamucf.cah.ucf.edu) to identify media aesthetics, assets, and editing choices. The second paper, “Curating Digital Stories for a Literary Magazine: Theoretical and Pedagogical Approaches,” was co-authored with my colleague Lisa Roney who is editor of Aquifer: The Florida Review.

I am happy to work with such great colleagues and former students on interdisciplinary digital storytelling projects and research, and to have the opportunity to meet more scholars and practitioners in this area!
