The Hearing Community Stories course in 2014-15 will build on previous work for this course, but will also take us in new directions.
In 2014-15 Hearing Community Stories will be looking at the question of community ‘resilience’. This builds on work in previous semesters, but takes it further. The questions we will be exploring will include:
– What makes some communities and individuals more resilient than others?
– What changes could be made in local and national initiatives to help people become more resilient?
Some key elements of Hearing Community Stories are:
– Students using their academic, literary or linguistic skills and abilties in ‘real-world’ contexts and situations.
– Working with academic staff and others on a current ‘live’ research project
– Collecting and analysing real-life stories from residents of Sheffield, and the organisations of Sheffield
In 2014-15 we will be working with a variety of organisations. They will include:
– Community centres
– Mental Health NHS trusts
– Local Government
– Arts organisations
