Story+ Research Symposium 2019

Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 12:00pm to 3:30pm

Students from the Story+ summer research program will present their projects.

Lunch starts at 11:45, and the program begins at 12:00.

This year ten Story+ teams are spending six weeks unboxing curious artifacts in the Archives (including a lock of Walt Whitman’s hair!), uncovering telling facts of social history at Duke and beyond (including its “stained” tobacco pasts), and remixing content into literary exhibitions, environmental podcasts, educational materials, 3D-printed stamps, musical liner notes and social justice image archives. Their topics range from asylums to feminisms to 19th-century social media stars, and their proposed products range from podcasts to pedagogical materials. Their methods include textual analysis, visual analysis, archival/historical research, social media research, narrative analysis, cultural analysis, creative work, artistic practice, oral history, writing and embodied performance.

You can read more about our teams on the FHI website and via our Instagram – which is ‘taken over’ by the teams during Story+ – at @DukeStoryPlus. Story+ is offered through the FHI and Bass Connections, with support from the Duke University Libraries and Versatile Humanists at Duke. Schedule updates will be posted on our Duke Calendar event and our Facebook event pages.
