Project Description

As part of the Transmedia Storytelling Initiative (TSI), we seek a talented student interested in forms of durational media (from gaming to film to oral storytelling) as well as competent in the new digital forms that are bringing them to ever more diverse audiences. Currently, subjects on these topics are scattered throughout the MIT curriculum; we hope that the student researcher can work with the director of the TSI to identify these and work with communications staff in the School of Architecture and Planning to design and execute a webpage or site that presents these resources in lively and creative ways. Project can be done for pay or credit and full-time or part-time.

Pre-requisites

Capacities in web design, communication, and the arts all appreciated.
