Digital Pragmata Brown-bag Session: "A Sense of the Particular: Telling Stories in Time and Virtual Space"



James Branch Cabell Library, 2nd Floor Multipurpose Room (Room 250)
922 Park Avenue, Richmond, VA 23284


A storyteller typically crafts an experience in time, presenting a particular set of events in a particular order. When these stories move to the web, however, the audience makes their own decisions about the order of the experience, in effect "choosing their own adventure." This talk by Alice Campbell, digital initiatives archivist at VCU Libraries, will look at the stories archivists share about objects, and the ways that the hypertextual possibilities of the web can be used to tell tales of connections, layered meanings and multiple alternatives.

Bring your lunch! Chips, cookies and drinks will be provided.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad StreetWest Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, please call Gregory Kimbrell, events and programs coordinator, at (804) 828-0593 prior to April 15.


The Digital Pragmata series is sponsored by VCU Libraries and the VCU Office of Research and Innovation.
