A two-year faculty and curricular development project to integrate humanities and science with experiential learning in history of science courses.

Dean College seeks funding to infuse the humanities into Core Distribution offerings by developing and piloting two courses in the history of science that incorporate hands-on labs: “History of Science” and “Henrietta Lacks: Medicine, Race, Class, and Gender in America.” We aim to create opportunities for faculty members in the history and science departments to study together in order to improve their capacity to teach the humanities; support our humanities Core Distribution courses; support humanities contributions to nursing and medical professionals; and disseminate our findings. The courses will showcase the humanities and their impact across the disciplines—especially in the sciences—emphasizing experiential learning. If we can contextualize science via the humanities, using critical thinking skills and knowledge about historical context vital to the humanities, then we will demonstrate how integral the humanities are to other disciplines.
