New course teaches students to tell their research story

“Narrative thrives on the contrast between the ordinary... and the unexpected.” Join SocSci 3KM3 in term 2 and find the unexpected in your research.

Nov 14, 2016

Social scientists and other researchers are exploring and experimenting with storytelling in different media as a method of research, and a means of sharing knowledge, engaging stakeholders, and motivating social or individual change. Drawing on empirical research and theory from both humanities and social sciences, this course asks:  Where do social science and narrative meet?   How can social scientists tell or share stories ethically?   What do modes of storytelling do to the story told?   What makes a good story?  Should we be suspicious of good stories?  Whose story is it?

Join Dr. Ailsa Fullwood in SocSci 3KM3: Narrative and Knowledge Mobilization, Tuesdays 1:30-4:30 in LRW-1056. 

Space available in the winter term. Sign up through Mosaic.
