Gifted Girl Chronicles
The Gifted Girl Chronicles is a multimedia project created and curated by Kris Dyson as part of her work at The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. The project’s mission is to collect and share oral histories from girls & women who have been labeled as gifted/talented during their K-12 education.
Gifted females often struggle with finding fulfillment and dealing with societal pressures & cultural norms. Navigating the complex social, emotional & academic landscapes of their lives presents unique challenges.
What causes some girls to succeed where others stumble?
How has “being gifted” defined their lives?
