Narrative Forms

Examines the form, function, and textual conventions of such narrative forms as (auto) biography, personal experience narratives, short stories, and novels. Explores literary language useful for discussing narratives, how narratives work for their readers/listeners, and what interpretive tools readers/listeners bring to narratives.

Class description

In this course we will play, modify, and analyze a range of digital and non-digital games to understand the role narrative plays in the development of these games. We will look at a variety of game types including board games, role playing games and of course digital games on multiple platforms. Prior technical experience is not required nor is the course targeted towards hard core gamers. It does require an open mind and a desire to play and learn about a variety of game types.
