The Poetic Media Lab is a Digital Humanities research and design group based in the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) at Stanford. We design and build creative platforms that promote new ways of conducting research, teaching, and learning in the 21st century.
One of our main projects is Lacuna, a collaborative platform for research, learning and teaching. By enabling social annotation features, the platform allows complex and comparative engagement with different forms of media concerning an academic topic.
Tiffany Zhu is a freshman interested in economics and planning coursework in MCS. At CESTA, she is helping create data visualizations for Lacuna, an online learning platform specially designed for the needs of teachers of literature.
