Next to language, storytelling is perhaps the most fundamental way of encoding information. Storytelling is basic to human civilization, entire human memory is encapsulated in different types of stories, legends, myths, songs, epics, dramas and other kinds of narratives. Stories have been the medium of disseminating the principles of philosophy, religion, science, psychology and perhaps our very historical existence

Through this session we try to bring storytelling to the center of the literature classroom. In our effort to understand and analyze the underpinnings of the structure of literature, storytelling has taken a back seat. Remembering that literature begins with stories and our very own positions in the English department was fired by the stirring imaginations contained in stories. Therefore, we bring you a session to help us to bring storytelling to the graduate and postgraduate classroom, so that whether you are teaching Genet or Derrida, you do not forget to liven up the class with storytelling.
