Message From Former Director Eric Poehler Upon the Ending of the 5CollBLDH Programs | Five College Blended Learning and Digital Humanities

A message from Dr. Eric Poehler, former Director of 5CollBLDH, upon the ending of the programs:

"It is a bittersweet moment, naturally, full of both pride in all that 5CollBLDH has accomplished and sadness to see it to completion. A final word of thanks goes out to the genuinely hundreds of people who led, worked for, learned from, and/or engaged with our program. You are why we succeeded and why we are here."

This week we have a double feature from the Blog! Smith College '19 grads Ella Martin-Gachot and Ray Van Huizen spent their time in the 5CollDH Undergraduate Fellowship developing their interactive project, Les Clefs de Chez Moi: Queer Home and Home-Making in Modern Paris. Through an ArcGIS Story Map and interactive website, the two document what home means to the queer community of Paris, and how we can better design public space to accommodate more diverse populations. Read their reflections in their joint blog post by clicking below.
