Spring 2022 End-of-Semester Student Events

As a culmination of their semester-long learning experience, Humanities Labs students develop impact outcomes—thoroughly collaborative and interdisciplinary final deliverables— that manifest their new understanding of the Lab's grand social challenges.

This semester, the Humanities Lab hosted seven Labs: Decolonizing 'Madness, Indigenizing Food Systems, Intro to Problem-Based Interdisciplinary Research, Language Emergency, Narrating Global Development, Navigating Chaos and Sustainable Fashion. After thinking critically to design their impact outcomes, students in these Labs have planned several end-of-semester events to disseminate their discoveries to the wider public. See below for a schedule of these events.

Please note that, unless specified otherwise, no prior registration is necessary to attend any of these events.
