The Latest Humanities Lab: Story Lab
The Franklin Humanities Institute will have some newcomers to it space, and this isn't a fairytale. The Story Lab will begin its tenure as a Humanities Lab in FHI staring in Fall of 2015.
Story Lab will offer a richly interwoven program of research, creative expression, course work, and civic engagement involving faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. The Lab will also reach beyond literary and cultural productions to consider how stories are marshaled for use in the sciences, in public policy, in business, law, and politics. In its first year, Story Lab will commence with the following three research clusters -- Environmental Narratives, Fandom and Production, and Storytelling and Migration. In addition, it will host a weekly writing workshop on its premises for those who wish to come together to write (and share) stories.
