Story+ | Summer 2018
Story+ is a 6-week summer research experience for undergraduates interested in exploring humanities research approaches (archival research, oral histories, narrative analysis, visual analysis, and more). The program combines research with an emphasis on storytelling for different public audiences. In Story+, students are organized into small project teams and have the opportunity to participate in a flexible mini “curriculum” on research methods and storytelling strategies. Team projects may be led by Duke faculty, Duke librarians, or non-profit organizations, and will be supervised on a day-to-day basis by graduate student mentors. Story+ takes place during Summer Session 1 (May 16 - June 28). Undergraduate students will receive up to $3,000 to defray housing and living expenses (please note that amounts may vary for projects with off-campus components). Story+ is offered through the FHI and Bass Connections, in partnership with Versatile Humanists at Duke.
