Each semester the Humanities Lab undertakes an investigation of a specific question or topic. We create a series of events, including lectures, workshops, screenings, and courses that elucidate the topic from different perspectives.

Join us for one event or for the whole series! All events are free and open to the public.

Our Current Investigation:

crisis slider 3Crisis Narratives | Fall 2015 and Spring 2016

This year we will explore major contemporary events that we might describe by using the word “crisis,” and interrogate the narratives that emerge from such critical moments.

Investigating media and cultural geographies: how do questions of space and location inform our understanding of social and political issues? This series of events considered landscape, motion, experience, and technology as interlocking layers, connected parts of a dense emotional and spatial geography.
