M4F engages WashU graduate students and other university and community-based participants in a co-taught, year-long (two semester), interdisciplinary seminar, a practicum, and an integrated series of activities including public discussions. The design of the studiolab models earlier “history workshop” movements designed to facilitate more participatory, inclusive and transformative interventions in history and memory. We describe M4F as a "studiolab" to emphasize the public-facing, creative, and experimental nature of this public humanities class and lab.
