Susquehanna University will host a Stories on Tap event titled Skin I'm In: Stories About the Body on Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. in Isaacs Auditorium of Seibert Hall.
Stories on Tap is a series of "community storytelling" events based in the Susquehanna Valley. Focused on a specific theme, each event includes a host and an accompanying musician. Audience members may sign up to share true stories related to the event's theme, and prizes are awarded based on the quality of the five-minute stories. Those interested in participating in the event may sign up online at www.storiesontap.org. Audience members can also sign up at the event if space remains available.
The event is sponsored by Susquehanna's Medical Humanities Initiative, Women's Studies Program and History of American Women's Health class. The Medical Humanities Initiative (MHI) examines medical education and the practice of medicine through a variety of lenses. The MHI allows students to attend conferences, present research to medical humanities scholars, and assist faculty in interdisciplinary research.
The Women's Studies program at Susquehanna offers a wide variety of courses across disciplines, as well as opportunities to get involved in gender-related initiatives on campus.
