Humanities Lab

Organisational unit: Infrastructure unit


The Humanities Lab is an interdisciplinary research and training facility mainly for researchers, teachers, and students across the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology. We host technology, methodological know-how, archiving expertise, and a wide range of research projects. Lab activities are centered around the humanities with research targeting issues of communication, culture, cognition and learning, but many projects are interdisciplinary and conducted in collaboration with the social sciences, medicine, the natural sciences, engineering, and e-Science. We have partners and collaborators locally (Lund University), nationally and internationally. The Lab is a vibrant and dynamic environment enabling scholars in the humanities to combine traditional and novel methods, and to interact with other disciplines in order to meet the scientific challenges ahead to understand, explain and improve the human condition.
