Humanities Lab Events

Check back here for New Events

Throughout 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 is host to three Labs: Avanzando: Education Pathways, Justice through School Gardens, and Humanizing Digital Culture. After thinking critically to design their impact outcomes, students in these Labs have either planned events or prepared work for 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.
