Description

In 2016, Lehigh University’s South Side Initiative received a Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative Grant to launch a collaborative website to reflect upon, analyze, and celebrate the vibrant local arts scene on the South Side of Bethlehem, PA. With a group of undergraduate writers, graduate student managing editors, community partners, and a faculty advisor, our website, Southsider (www.thesouthsider.org), has offered a succession of articles about film series at our local Arts Cinema, theatrical productions at Touchstone Theatre, visual arts and artists associated with the nonprofit Arts Establishment and other organizations, and musical performances in the live music listening room of Godfrey Daniels. “Building Southsider” will reflect upon the mentorship and training of undergraduate and graduate student reporters as well as collaborations with community partners to produce accessible scholarly reportage that examines how the arts shape our unique civic identity and address the challenges within our communities.
