What happens when stories meet mobiles? While many studies exist that look at the convergence of narrative and computing technologies, most of these studies consider digital storytelling within a desktop paradigm. Very few offer an analysis of narrative that is site-specific, context-aware, and within a paradigm of pervasive and mobile computing. In this cutting-edge collection, contributors examine the ways in which mobile media alter our conceptions of reading, storytelling, and the dissemination of narratives. Touching on questions of space and mapping, design and practice, memory and history, contributors grapple with the implications of mobile media for storytelling in the digital age.
