Humanities Laboratories

Founded in 2010, the core commitment of the FHI Humanities Labs is to engage undergraduates in advanced research alongside faculty and graduate student mentors and collaborators. Each Lab is organized around a central theme and a constellation of research projects that bring together faculty and students from across the humanities and other disciplines. Lab participants work in physical spaces at the FHI (both at our main location in the Smith Warehouse and, in the case of the Health Humanities Lab, in a "satellite" FHI space at Trent Hall) that are designed to foster formal collaboration as well as informal exchange. Shared technological resources enable the Labs to experiment with new research methods, new lines of inquiry, and new ways of engaging with public audiences at Duke and beyond. The FHI Labs have received the generous support of multiple internal and external sources since 2010, most notably from the Humanities Writ Large Mellon grant.

In 2012, the FHI also became home to the PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge. The Lab provides a collaborative environment in which PhD students in humanities and interpretive social sciences can learn about new digital scholarship, engage with its challenges, and see its promise for their own research and professional lives within or outside the university.
