The idea of the "story" often conjures up the kinds of tales we encountered as children, ones that swept us away to different times and places, took us on adventures we could never have experienced under the protection of our families. And this may well illustrate the power of the story at its most fundamental level - to transport us out of ourselves, offer us experiences that we may otherwise never have, and allow us to empathize with the characters that have them. Join Dr. Mary Kay Jennings, professor of literature and creative writing, on this adventure through the history of the story from Mesopotamia to the late 20th century in the Humanities Mini Text: Stories that Changed the World.
