Phronesis Lab is housed in the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion, and supports research in the humanities that is grounded in and tested against experience. We value projects that are interdisciplinary and innovative, and we are committed to putting our academic skills in the service of social justice.
We welcome collaborations from across the campus and the wider community.
Email Sharyn Clough if you’re interested in collaborating on any of our projects, or suggesting new ones.
