Creation of a general education course, three freshman research seminars, and an interactive app that focus on physical material from the multiple perspectives of science and humanities disciplines.

Materials Matter is a collaborative project of colleagues in Classical and Near Eastern Studies, Art and Design, Art History, Physics, Materials Science and Engineering, and Binghamton University’s Undergraduate Research Center, along with partners at the Corning Museum of Glass. We propose to reposition the humanities within the curriculum by teaching emerging research in the humanities to STEM students and, reciprocally, the latest science to humanities students. We will expand upon a pilot course to scale out in two directions: intensive freshmen research seminars and a general education course. Both will focus on materials, like glass or pigments, and explore the relationship between chemical elements and culture using humanities research methodologies alongside quantitative scientific methods, integrated through a coherent visual design and interactive app. A museum exhibition and summer research scholarship will present further opportunities for engagement.
