Visual Narrative

Narrative is a central mode of understanding the world around us. As narrative has expanded into digital media, new possibilities arise for the creation and analysis of powerful visual narratives which increasingly pattern our world. The work of the Visual narrative Initiative creates new forms of scholarship and communication, new computational media and their application to increased understanding of our past, present and future.  Our work bridges the expertise of engineers, humanists and designers to establish next-generation applications in visual media.

The Visual Narrative Initiative is part of the NCSU Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Cluster Program.  More information about the program can be found at
