Welcome to the Stories in Play Initiative (SIPI)! We are a group of researchers and scholars interested in exploring interconnection between storytelling and the digital humanities. The projects and resources on this site engage with five major themes related to digital storytelling: Gameful Experiences; Diversity and Inclusion; Higher Education & Scholarship; Hybrid Media Productions; and Procedural Literacy & Creativity. The links under Research Areas on the right-hand side of the site will lead you to our categorized posts.
SIPI is an ongoing research initiative based in the Centre for Digital Humanities at Toronto Metropolitan University. It is particularly (but not exclusively) interested in exploring work taking place in scholarly, practitioner, and reader/player communities in the GTA that addresses SIPI themes, and hopes to facilitate knowledge exchange between these communities.
