Documenting the Wellesley College COVID-19 Experience

The Wellesley College archives is excited to announce the launch of "Documenting the Wellesley College COVID-19 Experience." This project aims to crowdsource born digital materials related to the Wellesley College community's experience with life during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The archives is seeking donations from members of the Wellesley College community, including staff, faculty, students, and alumnae. Donations can include anything from artistic endeavors such as poetry, to assignments that had to be transitioned amidst switching to virtual teaching, to photographs - anything that speaks to this unprecedented time and how it has affected life for the Wellesley community. Donations will become a part of the official college record of this time we are living through and will be preserved as a part of our emerging COVID-19 collection.

The archives needs your help! Please submit donations here: https://sites.google.com/wellesley.edu/documentingcovid-19/home

We hope to collect material from the most diverse pool of community members as possible. If you have technology questions about submitting, or general questions about the process, please feel free to contact us at archives@wellesley.edu or 781-283-3745. Donations will be accepted on an ongoing basis.

 

Digital Scholarship Day 2020

Our seventh annual Digital Scholarship Day will be the first to be held virtually. To make it more accessible to all members of the Wellesley community regardless of location or other responsibilities, this year’s Digital Scholarship “Day” will span the months of May and June, with a formal launch after projects and data have been collected for presentation.

We invite students, faculty and staff to share digital scholarship that they’ve worked on this year, at any stage of completion. Examples of topics and media could include:

  • New teaching techniques or innovative assignments you’ve developed (either before or during COVID)

  • Student research - independent studies, thesis research, innovative class work

  • Any research/presentation you had originally planned on sharing in another conference

  • Video of you talking about your work/research

  • Digital poster originally intended for Ruhlman or some other conference

  • How-to video on a topic of your choosing

If you have a project or expertise you’d like to share, please email it to dsday2020@wellesley.edu and include a brief description. Submissions will be published on the DS Day website in June.
