Working groups

The Humanities Lab Working Groups offer faculty and students the opportunity to collaborate on topics of common interest. The Humanities Lab provides Working Groups with funding, meeting space, publicity, and organizational support. Working Groups design their own programs and focus, and may apply for additional funding for special events.


  • Working groups may include faculty and both graduate and undergraduate students.

  • Groups should meet at least three times a year.

  • At least one of the coordinators must be affiliated with a department or school at American University.
