Advanced Research in the Traveler's Lab
COL 375
Fall 2024
Section: 01  

The Traveler's Lab uses a combination of digital humanities techniques and rigorous historical methodologies to equip students in advanced directed research in the open-ended topic of movement of people, animals, and objects, and the spaces in and through which they lived and moved.

T-Lab advanced research students will (depending on the specific project): work individually or in small groups to turn specific historical material into data; utilize and/or learn skills in GIS, translation, database creation, database management, and digital visualizations; engage with the methodological and theoretical implications of their work; and be provided with conference presentation and publication opportunities.

As a part of the international Traveler's Lab network, students will also be connected to, receive feedback from, and be provided the opportunity to collaborate with professors at higher education institutions in the United States and around the world.
