LabSynthE is a creative laboratory in the School of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication for the investigation of synthetic and electronic poetry co-organized by Dr. Frank Dufour and xtine burrough.

We are currently working on projects at the intersection of memory, translation, and poetry; and sound, worker's rights, and feminism. The laboratory is a place where all voices are welcome. We operate like an improvisation group, prioritizing "yes and" as a condition for exchange.

The group meets weekly for two hours and is expected to meet for additional time when we are installing exhibitions. All graduate students and faculty are welcome to attend and collaborate. We also have collaborated with The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies; and welcome future collaborations across ATEC, the university, and the community.
