Baltimore Stories

 

 

Baltimore Stories: Narratives and the Life of an American City (Baltimore Stories) was an initiative that sough to establish a model that utilizes humanities scholarship— literature, history, philosophy, communication, art and cultural studies—to produce print and digital materials that help frame and contextualize narratives of race in American cities. The project also shined a spotlight on the ongoing, collaborative work being done in Baltimore neighborhoods by universities and non-profit organizations.

UMBC hosted three interactive public events in Baltimore, as well as a day-long culminating session hosted by the Dresher Center for the Humanities. Learn about UMBC’s Baltimore Stories grant.
