Story+ Summer 2020 Research Symposium: Day One

Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

Two sessions, 12 stories, 50+ students working in 18 states and 5 countries! Please join us for the Story+ Summer 2020 Research Symposium: Across the miles. Around the world!

This summer our teams have been conducting digital ethnographies of quarantined DJs, comparing past-and-present pandemic responses in Durham, unveiling the field of documentary sculpture, interrogating artificial intelligence in healthcare, examining experimental experiential interfaces for archives, leaping into embodied research methods like dance to analyze policy responses to coal mining disasters, tracing (hi)stories of individuals pictured in archival images, exploring the experiences of adult undergraduate researchers at HBCUs, probing root causes of migration and immigration stories and deciphering the role of gender in mid-20th century rural electrification efforts.

They’ve been writing poetry, designing technologies, managing interviews with academic and everyday experts, crafting digital zines, learning to tell stories through physical movement and watching global live-streamed DJ events.

And, we’ve been working together on questions of race, gender, time, geography, interface, immunity, community, live-ness, ethics, medicine, illness, the environment, education, art, history and materiality in a digital, remote-learning world.

Please join us as our teams present their process, offer findings, and raise questions! Story+ is funded by Together Duke and administered by the Franklin Humanities Institute in conjunction with Bass Connections, with support from Duke University Libraries.
