Abstract

This thesis explores storytelling from traditional to digital, demonstrating the form of today's storytelling. The main problem of this study is how traditional oral storytelling turns into digital storytelling. For this reason, first of all, we will travel back to the concept of traditional storytelling, meddahs, who are one of the most important storytellers, are examined. In addition to specifying the differences that distinguish digital narratives from traditional narratives in terms of form and content, the interactive nature of digital narratives will be explored. With digitization, the author is not alone in shaping his/her story now, and the writer and the reader communicate together. Thus, this thesis also examines how readers or audiences will be able to interact with the story itself without being passive in the face of the content and be active producers in conveying their own stories.
