We are working out our theme for the 2018 conference and invite your input.

Theme for 2018 Conference: Quantum Storytelling is a theory, method, and practice of material-discourse and sociomateriality. It is called 'quantum' because its an 'embodied' storytelling, its a 'spacetimemattering' storytelling, its is more than Western'narratives' ways of reducing our Indigenousliving stories to some simplistic linear plot, a few characters, or themes.There is also a theme of True Storytelling, in a time of Fake Storytelling. Jens Larsen , Lena Bruun, and David Boje have been working on a way to develop True Storytelling (defined as ethical material-discursive practices) to address global challenges, in a bottom-up approach to the UN Sustainability Goals (

Boje's Paper on '7 True Storytelling Solutions to the Global Water Crisis'; slides not presenting to go with the '7 True Storytelling Solutions to the Global Water Crisis becoming part of Sixth Extinction Event'

This year we would like to bring scholars and practitioners together with an interest in the opposition of Western Ways of Knowing (WWOK) and Indigenous Ways of Knowing (IWOK). Several presenters are coming from New Zealand to deepen our understanding of Kaupapa Māori (the methodology and theory of storytelling). An excellent book on the topic is Critical Conversations in Kaupapa Māori, edited by Te Kawehau Hoskins & Alison Jones (2017). An excellet text on IWOK is Norman K. Denzin, Yvonna S. Lincoln, and Linda Tuhiwai Smith (2008) Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies, with a chapter 24 by our regular, Gregory Cajete; and a book by our own Grace Ann Rosile (2016). Tribal Wisdom for Business Ethic. Our conference goers produced a new book, The Emerald Handbook of Quantum Storytelling Consulting (Boje & and Sanchez), and we anticipate its delivery by time of our 2018 conference.
