U-M HistoryLabs mobilize the power of history for real-world impacts that contribute to the common good. They bring together faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates as investigators and lab members in long-term research projects that involve both curricular and extracurricular components, often in collaboration with community partners. In this symposium, faculty from three HistoryLab initiatives—Immigrant Justice Lab, Policing and Social Justice Lab, and Collaborative Research in the Holocaust—will share their experiences and discuss the pedagogical implications of the lab model. Featuring:

Jesse Hoffnung-Garskoff, Professor; History, American Culture; Universiy of Michigan
Matt Lassiter, Professor of History, Urban and Regional Planning; Arthur F. Thurnau Professor; University of Michigan
Jeff Veidlinger, Joseph Brodsky Collegiate Professor of History and Judaic Studies; Director, Frankel Center for Judaic Studies, University of Michigan
Rita Chin (chair), Professor, History; Associate Dean of Social Sciences, Rackham Graduate School; University of Michigan

This event is part of the Friday Series of the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies. It is made possible by a generous contribution from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
