Tags Networks Narrative, an “Interdisciplinary application of experimental social software to the study of narrative in digital contexts” is a unique speculative project exploring the potential for collaborative keyword tagging (folksonomy) in narrative research. We want to know:

  • What kinds of collaborative social network tools are available for the gathering and classification of information?
  • Which researchers are making online narratives the focus of study, and how are those projects categorised by discipline?
  • How can these researchers make effective use of social network tools to share knowledge and develop interdisciplinary collaborations?

The project is based in the Institute of Creative Technologies (IOCT) at De Montfort University and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board from October 2006-September 2007. The Project Team comprises Professor Sue Thomas, Simon Mills and Bruce Mason.
