Call for Submissions
Mobile storytelling has become increasingly popular and powerful globally, be it a family story or a news story. Every year, mobile stories are shared in different languages and in different formats across time and space, attracting readers, viewers, and listeners of all age groups from around the world. What are the changes, challenges, and chances in mobile storytelling? What are the best practices in mobile storytelling? How to leverage the latest technological advances to enhance mobile storytelling?
To address these questions and more, the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), the Mobile Innovation Network & Association (MINA), and Mobile Studies International (MSI) have jointly launched an annual event for mobile storytellers worldwide: International Mobile Storytelling Congress (IMSC).
Consisting of workshops, conferences, and festivals, the congress aims to promote mobile storytelling for better communication in different areas ranging from community and civic engagement to new forms of storytelling, creativity and developments towards story making (Schleser and Berry 2018) and/or storyliving (Google New Lab 2017).
