The History Design Lab is built around a collaborative and creative effort to excavate stories about the past. As a community, we explore ways that archival sources and new methods can help us reimagine the ways we engage with history. With each of our projects, listening, learning, and experimentation converge to create a collective meditation on the stewardship of stories. Many of our projects are driven by an interest in people, events, and phenomena that we have missed in our popular recounting of the past. The hope is that the History Design Lab will foster a shared sense of investment in how we think about the past, and that others might find a connection in their encounters with these histories.
