Walking The Line Between Reality And Fiction In Online Spaces: Understanding The Effects Of Narrative Transportation, Sarah Gretter, Aman Yadav, Benjamin W. Gleason

Education Publications

Recent contentions about "fake news" and misinformation online has shed light on the critical need for media literacy at a global scale. Indeed, digital stories are one of the main forms of communication in the 21st century through blogs, videos-sharing websites, forums, or social networks. However, the line between facts and fiction can often become blurry in these online spaces, and being able to distinguish between reality and fantasy can have important consequences in the lives of young Internet users. Using contemporary examples from news stories, fan- fiction, advertising, and radicalization, this article outlines the features, affordances, and real-life implications ...

Let’s agree it looks much like the world we live in today, where some countries hold inordinate power over the lives of people in others; where global systematic racism, the shameful legacy of colonization and imperialism, has contrived to keep many humans poor and struggling.

Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley Apr 2014

Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

I created a 26-page comic book, created to be a teaser trailer into a ongoing series. In my work, I sought to create rich, dynamic characters that functioned in a fantasy world grounded in reality.

I also worked to improve my technical skills in drawing the dynamic figure on motion, my understanding of color, and composition.

I broke my project down into two semesters. In the fall, I created the sketch work for the pages. This included small panel thumbnails, research (architectural, kinetic, photographic ...
