Storytelling Academy – Interdisciplinary Research at Loughborough University
We are involved in a number of initiatives that look at the role of storytelling in today’s digital world and how it might be applied to bring new voices into the public debate around major challenges facing society.
The work has grown out of Professor Mike Wilson’s long-standing research into various aspects of storytelling and, in particular, Project ASPECT, a major AHRC-funded project, in collaboration with the Department of Energy and Climate Change, that explored the potential of digital storytelling to support wider public engagement in the climate change conversation.
When Dr Antonia Liguori joined Professor Mike Wilson at Loughborough University in 2014 to work on the DRY – Drought Risk and You project, an interdisciplinary research project, funded by NERC, ESRC, EPSRC, BBSRC and AHRC (2014-2019) under the RCUK Drought and Water Scarcity Programme, she brought her additional experience in leading Digital Storytelling EU funded projects.
