Welcome to the PublicsLab!

Thank you for visiting the site of the PublicsLab at The Graduate Center, City University of New York. The PublicsLab was an initiative than ran from 2018 to 2023, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, to transform doctoral education in the humanities at The Graduate Center. It provided support for the Mellon Humanities Public Fellows, sponsored events, grants, and fellowships related to public scholarship, and served as a resource for faculty and students who are interested in making their work more public.

Please feel free to explore the website, including our PublicsLab Archive, which has a plethora of interviews with community members, as well as various resources and inspiration for public scholarship and other public-facing work.

If you have questions about the PublicsLab, contact the Center for the Humanities at ch@gc.cuny.edu, or reach out to former PublicsLab Director Stacy Hartman at stacy@stacyhartman.com.
