Cross/Currents: Announcing a New Bennett-Polonsky Humanities Lab

The NYU Center for the Humanities is pleased to announce the launch of a new Humanities Lab for the 2021-22 academic year. The Cross/Currents H-Lab will bring into dialogue the environmental humanities and migration studies, with an emphasis on race, diaspora, and indigeneity. The Lab Team has outlined three main trajectories for its investigations around the notion of Cross/Currents: mobility, transmission, and flow. The Lab's ultimate purpose is to decenter an anthropocentric and imperialistic understanding of global interconnection and exchange.
