metaLAB (at) Harvard

The Berkman Klein Center is hosting metaLAB (at) Harvard — a newly founded "institutional home for Harvard’s digital art, design, and humanities communities. The lab is founded on the belief that some of the key research challenges and opportunities of the new millennium, not to mention crucial questions about experience in a connected world, about the boundaries of culture and nature, about democracy and social justice, transcend divisions between the arts, sciences, and humanities; between the academy, industry, and the public sphere; between theoretical and applied knowledge."
