Goucher College created the Collaborative Humanities Laboratory to enhance the study of visual, material, and historical culture using a National Endowment for the Humanities grant. This laboratory will be a physical and virtual storytelling space where students across disciplines gather, curate, produce, and present original scholarship centered on images, objects, and artifacts.

The Collaborative Humanities Laboratory aims to engage students in telling the stories of objects and to share these stories with the broader community. As a physical and online space that enhances student learning by exploring found objects, the laboratory aims to advance humanities at the college and foster a dialogue with the greater Baltimore community and the wider world.
