The history of the evolving field of new media work is pushing individuals to take a huge effort to preserve important artifacts and analyze projects. Extended Nonfiction is a project that promotes the study, training, production and preservation of audiovisual, interactive, transmedia and immersive nonfiction narratives. Extended Nonfiction is an informative, formative and productive proposal that places emphasis on the field of reality, on real stories; but not just any reality, on expanded and extended reality.
