2010 - 2013
Founded in 2010, the Haiti Lab is the first humanities laboratory at the Franklin Humanities Institute. The lab merges research, education, and practical applications of innovative thinking for Haiti’s disaster recovery and for the expansion of Haitian studies in the U.S. and Haiti. Located at the FHI’s headquarters at the Smith Warehouse, the Haiti Lab takes its inspiration from the collaborative and discovery-driven model of research laboratories. Undergraduate and graduate students work with specialists in Haitian culture, history, and language on projects featuring vertical integration of Duke University expertise across disciplines and schools. The Haiti Lab is also a resource for media outlets seeking to gain knowledge of Haiti.
The Haiti Lab concluded its work at the FHI in Spring 2013. We encourage you to explore the Lab's diverse range of accomplishments - in research, teaching, public engagement, other arenas - at this web archive.
