Narratives of Aid

In Winter 2022, students from Carleton University who participated in Dr. Phillip Primeau's course "Popular Culture in the Digital Age (SOCI/DIGH2705)" were offered the opportunity to complete an assignment focusing on popular narratives found in international and humanitarian aid media. Students gathered and analyzed photographs, posters, videos, audio, and other media products. The projects found here are entirely student created. Students could present their work in a variety of digital formats, illuminating the multidute of forms that digital humanaties can take. When brought together, this exhibit sheds light on the various symbols, languages, and imageries that go into constructing narratives of aid.
