Inequality & Storytelling

Inequality & Storytelling: Main Image T1

Programme Lead: Professor Chris Morris

Inequalities present wide-ranging challenges to contemporary society, whether they are economic, socio-demographic, or cultural.

Storytelling reaches across communities, proving structure, meaning and purpose, and serves to engage audiences, and grow understanding of issues and their ramifications. The programme is inherently cross-disciplinary and able to serve entrepreneurial, sociocultural ends, with purchase in traditional and digital media.

Research opportunities

We welcome applications for PhD or MPhil that align with the Inequality & Storytelling programme.
