The web site GenerationPulse is reaching further in its mission to promote awareness and action on behalf of social justice. With the help of an ATIG, faculty director Belle Liang and a team of students from the Lynch School of Education launched a new version of the site last spring.
English professor Joe Nugent received an ATIG grant to develop an interactive map for exploring James Joyce’s novel Ulysses. This unique learning tool plots the journeys of the novel’s main characters through Dublin on June 6, 1904, giving students a virtual means for experiencing what the city was like around the turn of the twentieth century.
The Boston College Writing Fellows Program, founded by English professor Paula Mathieu in cooperation with the Connors Family Learning Center, has supported undergraduate writing in core courses at Boston College since 2004. The program pairs graduate students who are trained to respond to undergraduate writing with faculty members from any discipline who want to focus more attention on student writing in their course.
