Anna will be talking about Session 7. The Role of the Narrator.
Part of the narrator's role is to present a perspective that shapes how the audience understands and interprets the story being told. But how do different approaches to narration affect audience understanding? In this session, Anna will talk about her research project - Destigmatising Disability in Future Stories - where she is exploring how different approaches to narration (or lack thereof) can influence an audience's understanding of disability, and the potential for increased stigma if these stories are not told appropriately.
