The Stanford Humanities Lab is a Center for Transdiciplinary/Post-Disciplinary Study. We discover fascinating futures to be explored in ignoring and crossing disciplinary borders.
SHL believes that some crucial questions about what it is to be human, about experience in a connected world, about the boundaries of culture and nature transcend old divisions between the arts, sciences and humanities; between the academy, industry and the cultural sphere.
We engage in experimental projects with a "laboratory" ethos collaborative, co-creative, team-based — involving a triangulation of arts practice, commentary/critique, and outreach, merging research, pedagogy, publication and practice. Beyond commentary and discussion, we build: new media, interactive archives, predictive models of social change, collaborative research workshops, art exhibitions.
