Welcome to the Stories in Play Initiative (SIPI)! We are a group of Ryerson-based researchers and scholars interested in developing an initiative which confronts the concerns of storytelling in the digital humanities. The projects and resources on this site engage with five major themes: Gameful Experiences; Diversity and Inclusion in Digital Storytelling; 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 conceived of as an ongoing research initiative based in the Centre for Digital Humanities at Ryerson 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.
