Beyond game worlds: Story-ing storied space & the hope-full endeavour
Turner, Jane (2016) Beyond game worlds: Story-ing storied space & the hope-full endeavour. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis explores the entangled stories in software artefacts and design. An apparently simple problem of participation in a digital approach to telling cross-cultural stories and communicating identity through use of game making software reveals potential dilemmas in the wider fields of participatory culture and new literacies, participatory design and contemporary approaches to designing. The thesis weaves a research narrative around six publications. By questioning the possibilities of crafting digital environments, that genuinely keep, tell, and reflect the experience of diverse cultural groups, the research demonstrates that the way design tells stories about itself is an increasingly important object of study.
