The winter session student team who created Hudson Valley Apples presents their project to the community. Join them for a tour of the interactive website they created over two weeks during the winter break and a discussion of the process of making it. The presentation is hosted by Historic Red Hook in the Elmendorph Inn.
Over two weeks during the winter break of 2017, five Bard College students (with the guidance of the Experimental Humanities Digital Projects Coordinator and the expertise of the Experimental Humanities Developer) conceived, designed, and built the content of this interactive website on the subject of apple cultivation in northern Dutchess County, New York. The students enriched their project, connecting it to place and their experience, by building relationships with local historians at Historic Red Hook as they worked in their archives, as well as a community of apple growers in Dutchess County, informally interviewing them on visits to their farms.
