Using digital tools, the International Urban Storytelling program captures the people, places and traditions of a region. Under the guidance of a Klein faculty member, students will produce a multimedia research project that includes audio, photography, text and video. This program explores the city as a classroom, mobilizing students through on-site lectures, excursions and field work.

The location for the program rotates each year, providing students with an in-depth look at two international destinations: Ireland and South Africa. These destinations are ripe for comparison given their post-conflict statuses, grappling with similar challenges as they each maintain peace in their respective locales.
