The Object Project, a grant-funded campus storytelling program supported by Digital Scholarship, the First-Year program, and more, was featured in the Spring 2021 edition of St. Lawrence Magazine.

The program, which focuses on storytelling about objects, was started by Nicole Roché, Project Support Assistant for Digital Scholarship, in Fall 2020. The Object Project seeks submissions from St. Lawrence University students about a significant object that says something about their passions and identities:  "a tool, treasure, or talisman they can't live without." 

“The past can feel too big, too distant, to inhabit or relate to,” Roché states in the article, “but if you ask someone to tell you about a treasured family artifact or heirloom, they usually start to open up. Something about the tangible object gets people talking.”

As part of the program, Roché is teaching a sophomore seminar this spring in which students help promote and produce content for the Object Project. One project asks them to create 3D models of a personal object using imaging techniques developed by Roché and her colleagues on the Digital Scholarship team.
