PechaKucha: Humanities Scholars on Narrative, Literature & Biography

Online Presentations

Faculty across the College of Humanities are engaged in research and scholarship that examines and contextualizes the world’s languages, literatures and cultures. Humanity is built on stories, from epic poems to personal letters and journals from everyday people. Careful study reveals insight, wisdom and unexpected knowledge in stories of all types. Faculty presenters will share and reflect on their own work and articulate what the act of storytelling means to human understanding and inquiry.

Japanese for ‘chit-chat,’ PechaKucha is a storytelling format in which a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary each, totaling 6 minutes 40 seconds. Presentations are grouped together for a fast-paced, simple and engaging showcase of new topics and ideas
