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.

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/.
You can learn more about Amherst’s Open Access policy, by going to:
