Come see the Making & Knowing lab, where the Making and Knowing Project is reconstructing historical artisanal, technical, alchemical, and craft techniques from the 16th century. As a research cluster of the Center for Science and Society, the Project brings together participants from the humanities, arts, and sciences to foster new connections and insights through interdisciplinary research, teaching, and knowledge exchange. Pamela Smith, Seth Low Professor of History at Columbia University directs the Making and Knowing Project.

Visitors are welcome between 3:00 and 6:00 pm.
