Peter Meineck (Project Director: August 2012 to April 2016)
YouStories: Classics, Conversation, Connection

Implementation of scholar-led reading/performance and discussion programs in 20 locations, a website, and a mobile app focused on the ways classical Greek and Roman drama continue to resonate today for veteran and public audiences.

"YouStories: Classics-Conversation-Connection" is a major new national humanities program that brings members of the veteran community together with the public to read, watch, learn from and discuss classical literature. YouStories connects grass roots local in-person public programming at 20 locations with Americans nationwide, via the innovative use of New Media, such as a specially developed YouStories app, live-streamed events and the dynamic use of social networking.
