The New School
The Humanities Action Lab (HAL) is a collaboration of 20 universities, led by The New School, working with issue based organizations and public spaces to:
- Foster new public dialogue on contested, deadlocked social issues, through public humanities projects that explore the diverse local histories and current realities of shared global concerns.
- Open space for experimentation and innovation in how design and the humanities can help confront urgent social problems.
- Combine and connect the diverse local perspectives of communities around the world, to create widely applicable and flexible models.
- Create new public humanities prototypes that take on difficult issues and experiment with untested formats.
