Governing narrative events with institutional norms (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Thompson, M., Padget, J., & Battle, S. (2015, May). Governing narrative events with institutional norms. Paper presented at 6th Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative (CMN’15)

A narrative world can be viewed as a form of society in which characters follow a set of social norms whose collective function is to guide the characters through (the creation of) a story arc and reach some conclusion. By modelling the rules of a na... Read More about Governing narrative events with institutional norms.
