Ideal projects:
  • Are designed for 3-5 students with a UMBC faculty or staff member as the Project Leader
  • Have a strong focus that can be explored effectively over a four week period
  • Utilize diverse research methods and humanities modes of analysis
  • Produce public-facing final projects created for a specific audience

For example, projects could engage with archived texts and images to develop websites, build podcasts from oral history or ethnographic interviews, or work with communities on documentary videos and digital stories.

The goal is to give students an interdisciplinary research experience while developing collaborative skills, telling effective stories, and amplifying voices to the general public. Projects can be proposed by faculty or staff members, alone or in collaboration with outside community partners.
