“Spoken word poetry and oral storytelling are at the core of what it means to be human,” says Will McInerney ’11. McInerney is one of three artists performing in the Process Series’ “Spoken Word/Spoken Justice” festival. Storytelling is one of the six subject themes of the Carolina’s Human Heart initiative.

Carolina’s Human Heart: Living the arts and humanities
The arts and humanities inform, inspire, energize and excite us. They bring context and meaning to the important issues of the day — and to our lives. This fall, the College of Arts and Sciences kicks off a major new initiative that amplifies and integrates the work that our faculty, staff, students and alumni are doing in the wide array of fields that the arts, humanities and qualitative social sciences embrace. In the following stories, read about events, lectures, conferences, new research, courses, performances, exhibitions and more, and bookmark our website: celebratehumanities.unc.edu.
