This presentation brings together several members of the Poetic Media Lab, a Digital Humanities creative hub founded by Prof. Amir Eshel in 2013. Prof. Eshel will speak about the ideas and hopes driving the lab and will share some stories about its past lessons and successes. In sequence, members will give individual short presentations on many of the Lab’s current projects and inter-institutional partnerships. This will be the PML’s most comprehensive presentation to date, a celebration of the variety of initiatives it sponsors and an opportunity to engage with other educators, creators and researchers.

Prof. Eshel is the author of several books, most recently Poetic Thinking Today (2019), where he elaborates some of the ideas behind the creation of the Lab.
