The Digital Narrative Network (DNN) is a newly established cross-faculty collaboration at the University of Bergen, focused on the impacts of the digital turn on the ways that narratives are constructed. The faculties included in this project include the faculties of the Humanities, Art, Music, and Design, and Social Sciences. To stay informed about our activities, subscribe to the DNN mailing list.
The network explores digital narrative from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, for example:
--Digital Narratives in Electronic Literature (reflexive literary artifacts in digital media)
--Digital Narratives of Everyday Life Online (as reflected for example in social networks and other mass-writing / identity / communication platforms)
--Digital Narratives as Interactive Digital Narratives (for example in computer games and other IDN experiences)
--Digital Narrative as Nonhuman Narrative (for example AI, machine learning, and machine vision systems that produce semi-autonomous narratives)
--Literature Reflecting Contemporary Culture After the Digital Turn (novels, poetry, etc. that reflect on the post-digital / post-human condition)
--Narratives of Digital Culture Reflected in Contemporary Art (for example sound art, procedural art, and performance)
--Digital Narratives as Visual Culture (for example in media arts inflected by the visual turn, or post-digital design practices)
The Network develops cross-faculty communication and cooperation and facilitates join research projects, organizes guest speaker events, research-in-progress presentations, conferences, and exhibitions of UiB art and research involving digital narrative.
