In his talk, "A Lab Model for the Humanities: A Timid Manifesto," Joseph Loewenstein will begin with a reflection on how digital humanities might contribute to developments in literary scholarship, developments that will entail methodological recovery as well as pedagogical innovation. This prologue will give way to a focus on project-oriented pedagogy in the humanities, a reorientation that could also be described as an appropriation, for the humanities, of the lab as an institution for uniting research and pedagogy. Thereafter, a double conclusion: a modest proposal, consisting of guidelines for the humanities lab instructor, and a discussion, in which the skeptical will be invited to protest the irrelevance of this model for their own pedagogical and research agendas.

Loewenstein is a Professor of English at Washington University in St. Louis, where he serves as Director of the Humanities Digital Workshop and the Interdisciplinary Project in the Humanities.
