What makes a good narrative? From fiction to advertising, political campaigns, and the ways we narrate our personal lives, stories are everywhere! With Stockholm as our case, we set out to discover narratives of this city in urban communication, travel ads, popular culture, films, and TV series. Using a workshop format, we explore the art of storytelling across genres and disciplines as you also learn to identify narratives within your own field of study.
