This short paper session will feature 4 panelist, Robert Cassanello, Yelena Kalinsky, Cody Mejeur, and Reema Wahab Barlaskar. Each panelist will present a short paper that examines the ways in which podcasting or podcasts incorporate digital storytelling and construct narratives. The panelists will examine podcasting narratives as producers of original content, subscribers of podcasts as well as teachers who utilize podcasting as a tool in the classroom.
Robert Cassanello produces the podcast A History of Central Florida with his students at the University of Central Florida. He will examine the ways in which their podcasts created community based research narratives to explore local history.
Yelena Kalinsky produces the Art of the Review Podcast with H-Net, She will discuss the experience of crafting a non-narrative weekly podcast on an academic topic. She will cover the tools, workflow with a long-distance collaborator, the process of coming up with individual episode ideas and thinking of a long-term arc for the series as a whole to create a narrative thread from episode to episode.
Cody Mejeur will examine game narrative. This presentation will challenge this trend in the study of game narrative by exploring gaming podcasts, Twitch streams, and Let’s Play videos (YouTube recordings of game play-throughs) as collective narratives. By looking at the collective narratives around games in various media, this presentation will advocate new ways of analyzing game narrative that can account for shared and divergent player experiences in games.
Reema Wahab Barlaskar examines the advantages of incorporating podcasts in the literature classroom. Through podcasting, students work together to construct monthly audio-blogs that record, edit, and publish their reflective response for an academic audience. By engaging with poetic texts through an auditory medium, podcasts not only permit opportunities for creative interpretation and analysis but also promote collaborative publishing. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the effectiveness of podcasting as a pedagogical tool in its ability to engage the reading of poetry as a shared experience.
