The Rust Belt Humanities Lab was a residential institute for higher education faculty members, June 4-18, in Cleveland, Ohio, that focused on the importance of regional storytelling in fostering a sense of place. Participants were equipped to help their students shape the future of the Rust Belt, identify and contribute to social solutions, and reimagine the role of the humanities within this sphere.
