William Poulin-Deltour awarded a Whiting Foundation fellowship

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

William Poulin-Deltour (French) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled The Debate over Same-Sex Marriage:  Toward an Enhanced Understanding of Contemporary France. The grant will enable William to spend three months in Paris to study French reactions to same-sex marriage and collect ethnographic materials that he will incorporate into his introductory and advanced courses on France. In particular, he will be examining how attitudes on same-sex marriage reflect and shape notions of national identity, gender relationships, and the role of the Catholic Church in French culture.

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Please join us on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 in the Center for Teaching, Learning & Research, LIB 225, at 12:15 PM

Middlebury College has just formed an Open Access working group to investigate this question. To kick start that process, we’ve invited Bryn Geffert, the College Librarian for Amherst College, who will lead us through Amherst’s work in this area. He’ll discuss the practical, philosophical, and legal rationale for pursuing an open access resolution; the questions, fears, and aspirations that surfaced during the debate preceding a vote; and Amherst’s other efforts to promote open access.

You can learn more about the Open Access working group at http://go.middlebury.edu/openaccess/.

The Spring Student Symposium Planning Committee

…the Symposium encapsulates Middlebury at its best. It was valuable for me to prepare and then present in a professional setting. An equally valuable component of the Symposium is how it celebrates students work. I am grateful that Middlebury has put time, energy and thought into a creating a day that celebrates all that goes on here– much of which could go unseen and unheard. — 2014 Symposium Participant
