Mystory for the epoch of electracy
by Troutman, Teresa, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 117; 1499309
Abstract (Summary)

The mystory is an experimental genre created by Gregory L. Ulmer at the University of Florida as a pedagogical tool and a self-reflective practice. The goal of writing a mystory is to create the mood in the mystoriographer that awakens the creative and inventive ways of thinking that differs from traditional hermeneutic methods of inquiry used in a Humanities education. After composing the mystory, which uses the tools of the World Wide Web to create a personal wide image, a mystoriographer becomes aware of the memes that have been part of the unconscious as he or she had been interpellated into their culture. Once aware of these memes, the mystoriographer can work to bring their Humanities education into the service of their community.
