The Humanities Collaboratory

Applications are open from now until March 27th!!!

The JHU Humanities Collaboratory provides opportunities for high-achieving humanities students from the Community Colleges of Baltimore County and from historically black colleges and universities across the country to participate in an intensive and innovative summer research experience through the Humanities For All Program and the Leadership Alliance First Year Research Experience (FYRE). The program is directed by Dr. Natalie Strobach, director of undergraduate research at the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences, and funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This Summer Humanities Collaboratory is a unique approach to bringing together students from different branches of humanities scholarship to work together constructively while pursuing individual research projects. In some ways, this collaboratory is modeled after scientific lab research: while each student will be working towards an individual project, everyone will be gathered together in one physical location and encouraged to observe and engage their peers and instructors. To help us achieve this goal, students and instructors will engage in live research where their computer displays are projected for others to see and participate in their research.
