I felt unprepared for my group tutorial but tried to steer the conversation towards options I could look into for when I get further ahead in my project so to not feel at a lose for ideas closer to assessment. It was suggested to one student to have a few experiments going on at a time so they could be working in the background.
I like this idea and have decided to take it on. I’ve been reading about how folktales are closely linked to how we share stories on the internet and specifically memes. I wanted to incorporate this into my work but I knew that it wouldn’t be at the forefront, as I enjoy the authenticity of folktales too much to let them turn into memes.
However, through discussion I have been persuaded to consider using the internet to help create folktales I’m thinking of ways I could do this:
- Group messages with friends, I give them a starting image they come up with a few sentences I give them another image and so on.
- Forums like Reddit (which I have just joined for this purpose). The same rules apply only.
- Find forums simply for Folklorist’s and see if I can conduct the same experiment there.
I’m looking forward to these experiments, they may be a success they may not work but we shall see!
