Storytelling for Social Justice: Research & Writing with Nonprofit OrganizationsCivic Engagement CE165SLUD
Elizabeth Goodhue
practice strategies for telling stories of social justice work through print and online media--including emerging multimedia technologies such as storymapping. All students will have the opportunity to delve into community-engaged research and writing in depth by working in small teams to collaborate with a nonprofit organization on a project that will be handed off to the community partner at the end of the term. At the same time, we will study past and present debates about the role of storytelling--and of the humanities more generally--in public life, particularly in diverse urban centers like Los Angeles.
