University of Virginia, College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences


Humanities Laboratories are conceived as new spaces for collaborative, discovery-driven, and experimental research at UVA. Led by senior researchers, the laboratories foster vertical integration of undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, librarians, curators and technologists around teaching and research initiatives, while developing horizontal links across multiple disciplines, both cognate and distant. 

Our labs, past and present:

Global South Lab

Improvising in the African City

Asian Cosmopolitanisms

The Coastal Conservatory
