In the spirit of exploration and revolution, term assistant professor of education Erika Kitzmiller and Associate Director of the Vagelos Computational Science Center, Saima Akhtar, are co-teaching the Grace Lee Boggs Learning Lab, to explore the groundbreaking activism of philosopher and writer Grace Lee Boggs ’35.

The learning lab will encompass two parts: discussions and digital research. The discussion-based reflections will focus on Boggs’ life, and the technical side will equip students with the skills they will use to highlight a local issue — once championed by Boggs — into a data-driven, digital research project. 

The course is supported by the DEI: Fund for Innovation in Teaching grant from Barnard College.
