An Emotional Travel Guide
October 19-November 30, 2020
Join us in writing an emotional atlas of the globe.
What’s the best place in your region to say, “Let’s Just Be Friends? What places seem to murmur, “You’re very special to me?” What exact spot feels like a dead end or a home field advantage? What’s the silliest place in town?
Places have feelings, too. From the heights to the pits, our neighborhoods are full of emotional topography: depressions, plateaus, and peaks. In this netprov, we will survey how the places around us make us feel to create our emotional travel guide: Moody Locales.
As yourself or as a fictional character, help us fill out a map not of sights but of feels. Where are your badlands? Your rocky patches and valleys? Where are your oases, your fresh springs, your refuges? Where did you reach a pinnacle moment? Where have you stretched out in your suburban sprawl? What are the twisted paths and trails that have helped you through the mountain pass?
Of course, one person’s happy place is another person’s gloomy gulch. That’s why we’re crowdscorching this atlas to get the full mix of experiences.
Teacher materials are available for instructors of any classes of undergraduate or graduate students.
