Digital Storytelling

This digital story, “falling apples and such…” was created at a StoryCenter Workshop in Denver, Colorado in July 2015.

This digital story, “Red Light, Stop! Genealogies of Reproductive In/justice” was selected for presentation at the 2015 Transform Digital Humanities Conference at the University of Maryland at College Park. It was created by Sandra and Melanie Patton-Imani.

In this video I explore my location as a researcher, an adoptee, and a human in relation to my research on Korean American adoption. I created this video in a Center for Digital Storytelling workshop in May 2013 sponsored by the Comparison Project at Drake University, funded by the Provost’s Office and the Olson Fund. Research in Seoul, Korea was funded by the Drake University Provost’s Office and the Center for Humanities.

intersecting identities in ethnographic research

This short (3 min.) digital video story explores my location of self as an ethnographic researcher, an adoptee, and as a human.  I draw on research I conducted in Seoul, Korea and in the U.S. about transnational adoption.

Telling Stories to Change the World

IMG_5791 IMG_5792Students in Introduction to Women’s Studies are reading about the power of narrative to create social change.  We will soon begin digital storytelling service learning projects with local organizations.  “…the power that stories have to generate hope and engagement, personal dignity and active citizenship, the pride of identity, and the humility of human connectedness” (pg 1).

normal

What would our world be like if “normal” were defined differently?  What would it be like if the things we valued the most weren’t things, but relationships and experiences?

I created this video at a Digital Storytelling Workshop for K-12 Educators at the Center for Digital Storytelling, Berkeley, California, June 2013, through a grant from the Olson Fund for Global Service Learning.

This semester students in FYS 15:  Diversity in the U.S. will create digital stories collaboratively with 4th graders at Walnut Street International Baccalaureate Elementary School.  Stay tuned for our project updates.

Students in my Introduction to Women’s Studies course will make digital stories in conjunction with their service learning projects at various local organizations.
