DescriptionStorytelling surrounds us yet it is often difficult to “see” it- we often seem as unaware that storytelling is continuously occurring much like a fish is unaware that it is surrounded by water. In this lecture you will hear stories, learn the likely origin of storytelling and become more aware of the stories around you.;;Most historians and psychologists believe that storytelling is one of the many things that define and bind our humanity. Humans are perhaps the only animals that create and tell stories. We have done this since time immemorial. Storytelling was the only way to receive, process and transmit information until modern times. Presently, storytelling is still the method whereby humans gain most of their information but the medium through which the stories are transmitted has evolved. Print, radio, TV, computers, cell phones… the list goes on and the media continues to grow and evolve.;;When the lecture- the storytelling- is over, you will have stories unfolding in your head and breathe the stories the envelop you.
