Queering Digital Storytelling


How can we enact a politics of care for queer, trans, and Two-Spirit people in narrative-driven digital storytelling? What is the role of an imagined audience in shaping the stories we tell? What’s the significance of centring diverse queer and trans experiences and audiences in storytelling and how can it disrupt dominant understandings and norms? In conversation with j wallace skelton, Evie Johnny Ruddy will share some reflections on their narrative-driven web-based and audio projects including the Queering the Queen City audio walking tour, Un/tied, Stories That Move You, and Cutting Through the Binary
