About the course
The course deals with the role and use of narrative from a cultural perspective. It gives an introduction to narratology and other models and methods used in literary theory. The course explores the key concepts of interactivity and agency, as well as the specifics, challenges and possibilities of interactive storytelling.
The course has a multidisciplinary foundation, exploring ideas from the fields of ethnology, literature and game design. It gives you a basic understanding of the theory and practice of interactive storytelling. Individual creative work is a central part of the course. The course gives you a deeper understanding of methods of creating interactive content such as narrative structure (linear and non-linear), dramatic character design, the mechanisms of interactive dialogue, computer-generated plots and visual storytelling (the basics of film theory).
