We are experiencing a renewed interest in the narrative in art, which makes perfect sense considering our current relationship to social media. We are constantly consuming the stories of others. Telling stories through the arts allows us to access the narrative in a variety of modalities. Unlike a Facebook blurb or tweet, these modes of storytelling allow for meaningful connections between people. We seek to support a variety of artists and scholars from both within and outside the University to curate a semester long program examining the resurgence of storytelling in the arts.
