LILRC welcomes digital anthropologist Frank Rose
, speaking on his new book, The Sea We Swim In: How Stories Work in a Data-Driven World
, a practical guide to "narrative thinking," and why it matters in a world defined by data.
“Whether we’re aware of it or not, stories determine how we view the world and our place in it. That means the tools of professional storytellers―character, world, detail, voice―can unlock a way of thinking that’s ideal for an age in which we don’t passively consume media but actively participate in it. Building on insights from cognitive psychology and neuroscience, Rose shows us how to see the world in narrative terms, not as a thesis to be argued or a pitch to be made but as a story to be told.”
