The Laboratory for Race & Popular Culture (RAP Lab) at the University of Colorado, Boulder is an interdisciplinary space for developing and exchanging ideas at the intersection of race and popular culture. We engage in active production of diversity — in research, in teaching, in outreach — rather than good natured discussion of it. Inspired by a natural sciences laboratory, the RAP Lab is experimental, project driven, and outward looking. We bring together students, faculty, and community leaders to work on collaborative and individual research, publications, archives, courses, community projects, and public events.
