Imagineering Stories: Digital Storytelling in Education and Research

December 10, 2020 from 2:oo pm to 4:00 pm EDT

Virtual Workshop. Preregister by December 7 to participate

Led by Anastasia Pantazopoulou, the “Imagineering Stories” workshop is centered around digital technologies which have transformed the way we conceptualize and tell stories creating a space where anyone can express themselves. More specifically, engaging with the goal of the Intersections group, the workshop aims at familiarizing the audience with digital storytelling, a digital technology that lends itself to be used as an educational, research, and social-interaction tool. The participants will be actively introduced to the possibilities that WeVideo, a video editing platform, affords to researchers and especially instructors, and will reflect on ways in which they can incorporate and utilize digital storytelling in their classes to facilitate critical discussions and creative thinking, especially at a time when online classes are our daily reality.

Anastasia Pantazopoulou is a PhD candidate in Classics at the University of Florida. She holds a BA in Philology majoring in Classics (2013), and an MA in Ancient Greek Philology (2015) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. She is an alumna of the American Academy in Rome CSS, an Intersections-Mellon Grant doctoral student for the 2018-2021 academic years, and a UF Graduate Student Teaching Award recipient for the 2017-2018 academic year. Her research interests include ancient Greek and Roman drama, and metatheater, classical reception, digital humanities, performance studies, and public scholarship.
