Medium Matters? Medium Matters Not? A Reflection on the Storytelling Mechanism across Media

Abstract (in English): 

We have been witnessing computer technology moving stories from page to digital platforms for years. Although we do have scholars, such as Espen Aarseth (1997), who have demonstrated the similarities of textual behaviours (not necessarily of narrative texts) based on different media, vast amount of studies tend to focus on the differences between digital storytelling and non-digital storytelling. Instead of questioning how digital media is different from non-digital media in terms of storytelling, this presentation will follow the footsteps of scholars who see the similarities rather than differences in different textualities, and will seek a perspective or position that transcends medium in the discourse of storytelling.
