Course Description

"A 'world' can be as small as a storage closet and as large as an entire universe; indeed, some stories have taken place on the underside of a leaf, within a single droplet of water." (Jeff Vandermeer) Worlds are the settings of our lives, the novels, TV series or computer games we choose to immerse ourselves in. But what are they made up of? How are they constructed? In this course we will disassemble constructed worlds and take a closer look at their building parts. We will examine concepts like Mythopoeia or Fantasy to explore storyworlds and realities in various media and gain insight into the workings of worldbuilding. Be prepared to actively participate in discussions and project work
First session: Bring your own world! Be ready to shortly present a storyworld of your choice. Course requirements will be discussed in the first session.
