5CollDH Kick-Off Celebration
On Friday, September 26th, students, faculty and staff from the Five Colleges joined us at Amherst College’s Frost Library to usher in the start of another year with the Five College Digital Humanities program.
Director Marisa Parham inaugurated the three-hour long event with a brief introduction to the digital humanities and the Five College DH community. Lightning talks, presented by 5CollDH project PIs and students, followed. Each talk highlighted the diverse number of humanists in, modes of inquiry utilized, and critical issues explored by our projects, as well as the highs and lows of each intellectual process. The event culminated with a soiree, where attendees had a chance to mingle, and stop by for our Student Fellowship/Microgrant, and Faculty/Staff Grants information sessions.
