Who is Walter Fisher?

Credited with formalizing Kenneth Burke's Dramatism, Walter Fisher introduced the narrative paradigm to communication theory. Fisher is Professor Emeritus at the Annenberg School for Communication.

Fisher's body of work is based on the concept that people are essentially storytellers, referred to as narrative theory. Storytelling is one of the oldest and most universal forms of communication and so Fisher propounded that individuals approach their social world in a narrative mode and make decisions and act within this narrative framework.
