Creating and Performing Stories in the Humanities and Sciences

The National Humanities Center (NHC), in partnership with UNCG Lloyd International Honors College and the Medicinal Chemistry Collaborative at UNC Greensboro, invites you to join this conversation on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the NHC in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

Designed to inspire cross-disciplinary discussions, panelists will share examples of how storytelling impacts their work as both humanists and scientists.

The humanities and sciences are often viewed as distinct and separate areas of inquiry. Yet whether we study history, chemistry, philosophy, or physics, our overarching methodology is similar in that it involves gathering data and constructing narratives, i.e., telling stories. A way of framing our overlap is by seeing the humanities and sciences as (1) guided by evidence, (2) subject to interpretation, and (3) open to revision. This one-day symposium is an opportunity for humanists and scientists to come together to explore our commonalities and learn from each other.

Moderators include Dr. Nadja Cech and Dr. Omar Ali.
