About Matthew Fackrell
Anthropology and Sociology Undergraduate; from Bristol, UK.
I am completing a research project on narrative transmission and reproduction, looking at how oral accounts of geological events are passed down accurately over generations. By understanding how narratives are constructed I am keen to explore interdisciplinary approaches, particularly between Anthropology, Linguistics, Computer-Human Interaction, and Cognition.
Other interests include literature, art and photography, architecture, astronomy, and outdoor pursuits.

Area of Expertise
Recent research has indicated that geological events from 10,000+ years can be recorded by oral narratives - without writing systems - and passed down accurately through time. This project aims to identify how such narratives are constructed, and where they may be applied to an urban, digital world.
