Taste of OSU 2019 Chair and Chair-Elect

Ohio State’s Project Narrative is a cluster of faculty, visiting scholars and graduate students who work on narrative and narrative theory.

Since 2011, the project has hosted 25 international scholars. Mari Hatavara is a current visiting scholar from Tampere University (Finland) working with Professor Jim Phelan, director of Project Narrative.
