Conference

2014: Transcending the iWorld: Extraordinary Stories in a Fragmented Age

What is the role of Story in a world overwhelmed with stories? Amidst the constantly buzzing barrage of micro-narratives, digital diaries, and fragmentary confessions, how do the Big Stories hold together? Do transcendent stories matter in the iWorld? This interdisciplinary conference explores the relationship between individual stories and metanarratives in contemporary culture. These questions created lively discussions as we gathered to celebrate story and ponder its complex role in today's society.
