Welcome to the EMM LAB

The Experimental Methods and Media Lab (EMM Lab) provides resources and structure for interdisciplinary collaboration at Trent University. Led by Dr Anne Pasek (Canada Research Chair in Media, Culture, and the Environment), EMM Lab aims to foster capacities in emerging and experimental methods of inquiry that draw on strengths—and reach audiences—beyond traditional modes of academic writing. It is both a media lab, providing production equipment for film, video, audio, print, and critical code projects, and a methods co-laboratory, in which faculty and students explore creative methods of research and research-dissemination.

With close affiliations to the Cultural Studies department, and with a mandate to actively participate in Peterborough’s arts community, EMM Lab facilitates access to media production equipment, peer expertise, and creative collaboration.
