This project describes three pedagogical practices that use storytelling to engage students in exploring and inventing their shared community. Through service-learning stories of community members, self-analyses, stories of work, and TED-style multimodal talks, students at the University of Notre Dame and Indiana University South Bend expand and disturb the meaning of their local community and, in doing so, help to rewrite the haunted story of South Bend, Indiana.
