Narratives are critical for understanding the world in which we live. This module focuses on how we can use narrative to make a difference in a range of professional and organisational settings. The module encourages students to develop an interdisciplinary project which showcases how narrative, and the careful construction of stories, helps to convey meaning around a given topic.
Collaborating with your fellow students you will research, explore and experiment with possibilities for developing narratives that communicate the strategic objectives of a topic. You will develop your narrative through a range of perspectives including, visual, textual or spoken presentations. This Westminster Plus Elective allows you to apply narrative and storytelling to a range of different contexts.
