- Although stories and storytelling have long and varied histories across multiple geographies, they are increasingly being valorized in new and public ways.
- Drawing from feminist, Marxist, anti-racist, and decolonizing theoretical frameworks, we critically unpack humanities-based happenings and (re)read the “creative re-turn” in geography and medical-health sciences.
- We conclude with reflections about anti-hegemonic ways humanities-informed methods and methodologies, including stories and storytelling, might be taken up in an “unscripted” way by geographers and medical-health researchers.
