Hi folks ... I have uploaded a recording of me telling one of my stories - Max and the Chicken-Pox Chicken. It's listed as a music file under My Music (look on the left of this page) 'cos that's the best I could do with the technology! I'm telling to a bunch of 5-6 year-olds in their classroom; there are about 25 of them, plus two teachers, so there's plenty of participation and some background noise! Hope you enjoy it!
You research sounds fascinating and is only one step away from using storytelling as an application to what you do.
I do cultural research, ethnographic studies, social marketing, cross-cultural communication, etc. I love it and it takes me all over the world working with some fantastic organizations. I'm affiliated with a research center in Atlanta, but live in India these past five years. I've lived overseas in various countries for over 25 years now!
Once again, please consider joining our group. I think you with your background, your insights, experience and wisdom, would really add to the richness and flavor of our group. Read over the various postings (I really do think you would find them interesting and maybe even get some ideas for your research and it applications), then offer some comments. Even raise some questions or throw out some new, wild ideas by starting some new discussions.
However, whether you join Applied Storytelling or not, I would be interested in staying in touch and in learning more about what you do.
Greetings! I would be interested in hearing about your research, since that's what I do. Won't you consider joining the group Applied Storytelling: The Power of Story? We would love to have you! All the best. STEVE
We love that famous English self-deprecation!!! So charming! What part of the UK do you live in? Do you know Hugh Lupton?? He is one of my very favorite tellers. I want to set up a UK tour to tell my epic Ernest Shackleton story, will you be my agent?? Just kidding --- I think. But seriously, how do you think the Brits would feel about a Yank telling the tale of one of their national heroes? Would that seem presumptuous?? I'm curious to hear your initial reaction on that. For more about my Shackleton story, go to my individual page on this site (this is the tandem page) or to my website, www.lawrencehoward.name. Thanks!
Well we are glad you are here. My big dream is to be invited to tell tales in England and finally see where I was born in Swindon. I had duel citizenship till I was 18, yet I still haven't managed to make it back since I was just a babe in arms. So when I make it to England I hope yours is one of the faces I will see.
