Anti-requisite(s): 54072 Narrative and Theory AND 58330 Narrative and Theory


This subject draws on a range of narrative traditions to explore the history, theory, and practices that underpin the ways we create and consume stories in contemporary society. Through the study of fictional forms, students develop techniques to construct narrative: these foundational skills are used to create story, character, point of view, temporality and setting. Students learn to critically reflect on their own production of narrative and on the possibilities of storytelling in the contemporary context.
