Sensory Ethnography Lab
The Sensory Ethnography Lab (SEL) at Harvard is a unique collaboration between the Department of Anthropology and the Department of Visual & Environmental Studies (VES). Harnessing perspectives drawn from the human sciences, the arts, and the humanities, the aim of SEL is to support innovative combinations of aesthetics and ethnography, with original non-fiction media practices that explore the bodily praxis and affective fabric of human existence.

Mesoamerican Lab
The Gordon R. Willey Mesoamerican Lab, or Meso Lab, has been dedicated to research in Mesoamerican archaeology, ethnology, epigraphy, and iconography, and provides working and meeting space for students. The lab links museum and departmental activities through internships, study projects, and fieldwork. The lab fosters collaborations between the Harvard faculty, students, museum staff, outside scholars, and countries with Mesoamerican archaeological sites and descendant communities.
Zooarchaeology Lab
The Zooarchaeology Laboratory of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, was established in 1981 in order to facilitate the analysis of faunal remains from archaeological sites (also called Archaeozoology).
