Innovations in Storytelling

As the Center for the Humanities prepares to celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2024, it devotes this year’s speaker series to storytelling, an endeavor at the heart of the humanities. Our yearlong series envisions storytelling expansively and brings a variety of practitioners — historians and novelists, cartoonists and artists, musicians and musicologists, anthropologists and quilters — to campus to discuss the innovative ways in which they tell stories.

All events in the series are free and open to the public.
