In these days of social, political, and ecological gloom, it's easy to become cynical. Everyday we are bombarded with news of racial prejudice

There's a long weekend coming up and for your reading pleasure I found this piece while perusing my anthropology feeds.

 

What I love about this post by anthropologist Paul Stoller is that he chose to discuss famous anthropologist Edith Turner and her work on narrative. In particular he focused on Turner's emphasis on narrative that generates collective joy.

 

Wow. Collective joy. What a concept. Particularly today when we are being pounded by narratives generating collective fear, angst, racism, and division.

 

Turner died in June and her final book was Communitas: The Anthropology of Collective Joy, which she published in 2011. As Stoller says, "Unlike most academic work, Edie Turner’s contributions to anthropology and to humanistic scholarship provide us a framework for thinking about well-being-in-the-world."

 

This isn't a long piece, but it is rich and feeds the soul. Read it and drink its insights.

Recently, I was in Singapore for the second Transmedia SG, giving a Masterclass on Native & Indie, & I had the opportunity to connect with two fellow Transmedia Alliance co-founders, Anita Ondine & Marco Sparmberg.

Nice post, Siobhan! Interesting reframe (as we psychologists like to say to try to sound erudite). Is this a chicken and egg thing? Storytelling starts with the audience because all connection starts with a psychological need. Success fulfillment of the need (excitement, emotion, transportation, curiosity, engagement) means you have to know what need your are filling and not just how and where but what story to tell to reach them. The genius, then, is two-fold, the humanity to see the need and the skill to crafting the story to match the need. Love the example.

I like the way you frame this Pamela! It is indeed a two-fold process & understanding the audience, especially for interactive and/or multi-platform is HUGE! At least two more examples to follow!
