Transcending the iWorld: Extraordinary Stories in a Fragmented Age. What is the role of Story in a world overwhelmed with stories? Everyone has a story, and--thanks to technologies like Twitter, Facebook, blogs, camera phones and YouTube--most everyone has a platform. But amidst the constantly buzzing barrage of micro-narratives, digital diaries and fragmented confessions, where do the Big Stories fit in? Do transcendent stories matter in the iWorld? This interdisciplinary conference explored the relationship between individual stories and meta-narratives in contemporary culture. These questions created a lively discussions as we gathered to celebrate God's gift of story and ponder its complex role in today's society.
