International Research Centre for Interactive Storytelling

The International Research Centre for Interactive Storytelling (IRIS) has been formed to explore new and emerging methods of storytelling through new media and technology. Our activities involve both film production and academic research. Hence, we aim to promote and facilitate dialogue between creative practice and theoretical knowledge, providing the conditions for the development of a wide range of research projects. 

The research centre, although focusing on a very specific area of new media, will bring together an interdisciplinary network of researchers, practitioners and students in order to foster creative conversations around ground breaking interactive practice.

Director: Dr. Stefano Odorico

Co-director: Prof. Graham Roberts
