THE NEW YORKER has published a short but very interesting article about Storytelling: Why Is the U.S. Government Interested in Storytelling?
D.A.R.P.A. funds projects involving cyborg insects and killer robots. Why the interest in narrative theory?
The comments are worth a look as well. Someone writes for example ...
A deeper and more sophisticated understanding of storytelling could have strategic policy implications for the US, in terms of how we support different groups in other countries and intentionally use story narratives to shape cultural perceptions.
Yeah, this topic is worth a thought or two.
