Storytelling Theory

I've got a blog located elsewhere - and am finally back to posting occasionally critical review and storytelling theory.

recent articles include some thoughts about framing, and a list of 'story round/ story sharing' don'ts for discussion.

If anyone is interested... here is the link (there's an RSS feed to sign up to).

Have been looking a lot at Tim E's  …

Hi ya, Kat. I've been gone from the site so long that I'm just noticing your comment. It sounds like we are doing similar things but on different roads. Psychiatrist and neurobiologist author Daniel Siegel uses some similar concepts as those in cognitive blending while calling them terms such as "self narrative" and "personal narrative."

Good luck to you. Let me know if you have any ideas you want to kick around. I haven't looked much into cognitive linguistics. Is pyschoacoustics (not my field) also of interest to you? I know someone who is looking in that direction.

Hey Kim (and Kat!)

This is not something I want to forget about, this link of neuroscience and storytelling. How is the Masters coming along?

I like what you said about it not being vague or inspirational but hard data. The more of that the better!

Look forward to hearing an update from you when you get a chance.

Yes, Kat--there is so much new information, or, at the very least, reevaluations of what is known, that this is really an exciting time. I am interested in the neurology behind the conceptual blending--cognition, emotions, and their integration, as well as the linguistical dynamics. It is not so much that telling developed, or is an outgrowth, from these forces, but that it had to be.

Hi Kat - nice to virtually bump into you. Are you still in the States?

YAY! The troupe lives on! Give Richard my love (that rascally rabbit!)

Wow you are only back for a planning on coming to FaTE? I will be there for that and then in Reading in August for FEST. Be good to cross paths, and see all the stuff they stuffed into your head over there! Sounds wonderfully intensive.

Thanks for the prompt response, Kat.
Please take a look at the website of the Narrative Arts Club, where I perform and host innovative storytellng for adults in Dublin:
Let's make further conversation on the thread about Telling Stories for Grown-Ups.
Hope 2010 brings all good things.

Hi, Kat,

Good to hear from you again. I've no idea what I am still doing awake; its 01.45 here but it is about to be an hour earlier because the clocks go back tonight. Such a worthwhile comment! Good night.
