The Sound Lab

A joint initiative with the Department of History, the Sound Lab provides students with the opportunity for the creative communication of research to a broad public within and beyond the University. Through a range of programs within and beyond the formal classroom, students involved in the Sound Lab gain experience with the basics of sound recording and audio editing, allowing for the recording and dissemination of talks, events, and the production of podcasts. The lab also intends to foster creative, student-run initiatives to experiment with other creative sonic presentations of their research interests. In its initial stage of implementation, the Sound Lab’s resources are focused on supporting graduate pedagogy, with plans to extent instruction and opportunities to faculty research and undergraduate pedagogy in the future.
