Hi All...I've been negligent to this page.
I have a MA in Oral Traditions from The Graduate Institute in CT. Website is www.learn.edu. It was an amazing program. My co-hort leader was Robin Moore. Time well spent. I highly recommend it.
It's enriched me so much, honing my skills in my performing and my teaching. I've thought about going on for a PhD. There is a program based out of Wales in Storytelling, and it can all be done online through Skype. You need a mentor in your area. I don't have the information handy, but it is available online. Jack Zipes recommended it to me.
Hi, This is Anne, & I'm new to PS. In pursuit of a Doctor of Missiology degree from Biola's Cook School of Intercultural Studies, I'm researching Reproducible Bible Storytelling in Taiwan. The focus is how successful (reproducible) storytelling indigenizes, with a hope to influence the original tellers to do so more acceptably in Taiwan's context.
I hold a Master's in Educational Theatre from NYU. My focus there was in applied and community-engaged theatre, which included a lot of discussion on the role and value of storytelling -- both as a theatre genre and as an art form into itself. As a part of that, I got to spend a month in Ireland with a lot of storytellers, bards, and local theatre artists. In a different class, one of my favorite discussions in a class was on mime as a form of corporeal storytelling.
I'd highly recommend the program, both for its breadth of learning and connections, and as a way to really get deeply immersed in in what applied storytelling and theatre can be in communities.
Hello Caleb. I´m a drama teacher and professional storyteller from Spain. I´m very interested on the value of storytelling in Education and I´d love to visit Ireland and learn from their tradition as great storytellers. I´d like to exchange my experience and doubts with you, since I think we could help each other somehow. Greetings from Seville
