The Baltimore Stories project is an initiative funded by the NEH Humanities in the Public Square grant. The project is designed to help examine the roles of narrative in the life and identity of the city and will produce an educational website to help educators and the public investigate the roles of narrative and race.
The Arts and Humanities Center for Synergy invited campus researchers and artists to a convening of those working or interested in and about Baltimore. Campus scholars from diverse areas of expertise came together on a common issue to examine the roles that this public, land grant university is playing and can play in Maryland’s post-industrial city.
The Baltimore Stories project has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is a collaboration between the University of Maryland, Maryland Humanities Council, the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Enoch Pratt Free Library and the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
