The Public Narrative Collaborative Global Arts & Humanities Discovery Theme is offering small grants up to $500 for work dealing with public narrative for undergraduate and graduate students graduating in spring and summer of 2019.
The Public Narrative Collaborative supports broad definitions of public and of narrative. Its work is grounded in the cultural pervasiveness and widely-acknowledged power of stories and storytelling. Once thought to reside safely in the domains of literature, history, and folklore, narrative is now recognized as significant in just about every sphere of human activity: in politics, medicine, religion, education, law, business, sports, the art world, and on and on. In addition, narratives appear in a range of media: print, radio, film, television, comics, theater, the digital, painting, sculpture, and curated art exhibitions. Furthermore, narratives have countless purposes, some of which frequently overlap: reporting, explaining, interpreting, evaluating, entertaining, socializing, persuading, and more. Narrative, in short, is a way of knowing and of doing.
PNC would like to make clear that “telling” in this context is not limited to verbal or written language, in fact proposals working in media including but not limited to visual art, sound, performance, moving image will be welcomed.
