Story+ | The Maria de Bruyn Papers Speak: An Illustrated Memoir of the Global HIV/AIDS Pandemic
For the Story+ summer 2018 project, "An Illustrated Memoir of the Global HIV/AIDS Pandemic: Archives Speak," students produced a modified graphic novel that tells a story of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic based on materials from the Maria de Bruyn archive in the Rubenstein Library.

Story+ is a 6-week summer research experience for Duke 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.
