'Postdigital Storytelling: Poetics, Praxis, Research' by Spencer Jordan

Postdigital Storytelling

We are delighted to announce that Spencer Jordan's book Postdigital Storytelling: Poetics, Praxis, Research has recently been published by Routledge. 


Postdigital Storytelling offers a revalatory re-evaluation of the dynamic and innovative area of digital storytelling. Central to this consideration is the emergence of metamodernism as our dominant cultural condition.

Jordan argues that metamodernism has brought with it a new form of creative modality, where the divide between the digital and the non-digital are no longer in opposition, no longer binary. The book explores the emerging poetics of this transmedial and hybridic postdigital condition by analysing hypertextual, locative mobile and collaborative storytelling. Examining twenty-first century storytelling, including print-based and nondigital art forms, the book widens our understanding of the modes and forms of metamodernist creativity.
