Digital Humanities at Georgia Southern

Introduction

The H-Lab is a new space in the Interdisciplinary Academic Building (IAB) at the center of the Georgia Southern campus in Statesboro, Georgia.  H-Lab stands for both "Humanities Lab," because it is the home of the Digital Humanities program, and "History Lab," because it is run by the History Department. The mission of the lab is to use creative skills, interdisciplinary approaches and cutting-edge tools to develop digital and applied humanities projects.  The H-lab is comprised of:

  • The Maker Space (IAB 1013)--Laser cutter, 3D and 2D printers, tools and workspace
  • Gaming and Conference Space (IAB 1014)--VR and Gaming Equipment
  • Media and Scanning Studio (IAB 1008)--3D scanner, 2D scanner, Wacom Cintiq tablet, media transfer and computer resources.
  • Sound Studio (IAB 1008A)--podcast station, sound mixer and field recording equipment for oral histories
