Get Involved

We are eager to collaborate on new projects and initiatives. You can get involved by:

  • attending a lecture or event at the Humanities Lab
  • suggesting an event, speaker, topic, or collaboration
  • creating a new working group
  • co-sponsoring an event or talk
  • organizing a conference or symposium with us
  • suggesting a source of external funding, and helping us develop and submit an application
  • becoming a member of our advisory board
  • letting us know of an event you are organizing that would be of interest to our community
  • joining our mailing list

If you are teaching a class that you think would connect to our Investigations series, please let us know. We work with a number of  instructors each semester to create events and workshops that would be of interest to our students.
