Story Circle is the first collection devoted to a comprehensive international study of the digital storytelling movement. Exploring subjects of central importance on the emergent and ever-shifting digital landscape, such as consumer-generated content, memory grids, the digital storytelling youth movement, and micro-documentary, Story Circle pinpoints who is telling what stories where, on what terms, and what they look and sound like. From China and Brazil to Western Europe and Australia, Story Circle charts how tales are being told and retold in the digital age.
"There can be no doubt that this book is important in fostering understanding of DST's potential and it deserves many readers among students, researchers and practitioners." ( Seminar.net , July 2010)
