How can we humanize digital culture?

Lab participants consider how digital culture is (re)shaping human identity, and how humankind attempts to humanize digital culture. An ArtScienceTech lens offers interdisciplinary inquiry and creative platforms to engage with cutting edge initiatives in humanizing digital culture (HDC) through digital identity enterprises, XR and net-native art experiences, experimental publishing, and other innovations. Fulfills HU general studies requirement.

Leonardo Labs

Presented in partnership with Leonardo, the Leonardo Lab Series uses a unique arts, science, and technology perspective to understand and address social problems in an ever-changing, technological world. Working in new media art forms like augmented reality, experimental publishing platforms and more, students navigate the complex challenges humans face amidst increasing mediation, finding opportunities for liberation, self-determination, connection, and joy. To learn more about Leonardo, visit their website at
