Project Search Expands to Include Humanities
This year's incoming first-year students at Duke will have a new pre-orientation option. Project Search—founded in 2009—is a two-week program designed to provide research opportunities to students who have not had substantial lab experiences prior to admission. This year for the first time pSearch will include an option for students who are interested in learning to do research in the humanities. Philip Stern, Associate Professor of History and co-director of the BorderWork(s) Lab, will be guiding a group of incoming students through a range of techniques and tools that are important to humanities scholars and researchers.
Students selected for the humanities track in pSearch will live and socialize with students in the original biology sequence.
