The Digital Scholarship team is excited to announce that Nicole Roché, who has been teaching in the FYP since Fall 2018, has been hired as the new Project Support Assistant for Digital Scholarship.

Roché has a background in journalism and creative writing. She brings many years of teaching experience at the University of Kansas and the University of Montana, as well as her experience as the Online Managing Editor of CutBank, the graduate literary journal at UM. She said she first became interested in joining the Digital Scholarship team after working with Director of Research and Digital Scholarship, Eric Williams-Bergen, to incorporate digital narrative and photo annotation projects in her FYP “We Are Our Stories” and FYS “Everyday Artifacts.” In her FYS, students use digital projects to tell the history of treasured family heirlooms through old photographs and other primary materials that document family history, such as immigration records and military records, as well as through more personal documentation like letters, diary entries, and home recordings.

Roché said she is excited to work on digital projects with faculty and students across disciplines.

“My students absolutely light up whenever they hear we’re going to be doing a new digital project,” Roché said. “Digital is the future: at St. Lawrence and everywhere. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to join this talented team and to participate in the cutting-edge work they are doing.”
