In the spring of 2014, Jane Kamensky (HIST) and Debra Sarlin (LTS) worked with seven undergraduates enrolled in the course titled "Copley's World: A Humanities Research Lab." The members of the class completed a set of assignments in common. Each student also created her own exhibit to showcase a research-intensive final project focused on the life, art, or times of the painter John Singleton Copley.
