The Indigenous Critical Media Lab (ICM Lab) is a collaborative research and teaching co-op for the exploration of digital arts and research. Based at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS, the goals of the Lab are to:

  • Provide infrastructure for humanities and arts research based in Indigenous methods, cultural expression and language revitalization;
  • Rethink methods of digital humanities and media arts from a perspective of Indigenous epistemologies, pedagogies, and protocols;
  • Build local and regional communities of practice, knowledge sharing and mentorship;
  • Offer a program of public engagement.
