Project title: Reimagining narrative possibilities in the digital age.

In the light of the fractal and relational subjectivities outlined in feminist theory from Irigaray to Kosovsky Sedgewick, I will explore and create three non-linear digital narratives, centring around expressions of polyphonic internal voice, interwoven with the language afforded by contemporary technologies. 
My critical paper will examine the work of the British writer Christine Brooke-Rose, drawing a line from her interest in the techniques of the Nouveau Roman, through her own interest in media and computer languages, to the possibilities and constraints of today's digital subjectivities.

Supervised by Clare Connors, Jeremy Noel-Tod
