StoryStream partner Cambridge Forum shares with us several on-line programs featuring storytellers that have been webcast on the WGBH Forum Network.
Storytelling in the Electronic Era
Storyteller Odds Bodkin and Harvard folklorist Maria Tatar explore the art of the story in the 21st century.
Telling stories is an ancient art, a holdover from the pre-literate human past. How did the advent of the written word affect the art of storytelling and the stories themselves? Why does oral storytelling persist? What impact will the digital culture of wikis and filesharing have on the future of storytelling?
