Meet Iris Afantchao, Blackwell Post-Baccalaureate Fellow

We welcome Iris Afantchao as the new Blackwell Post-Baccalaureate Fellow at Smith College Collections. In this role, Iris will work to co-curate an exhibit using the rich materials from Special Collections. Iris also will assist staff members as she learns about the many functions of a special collections' repository. This training includes reference services, instruction, collection control and more.

Prior to their time as a fellow, Iris was a Government major and Archives concentrator at Smith, graduating in 2020. Outside of the library, Iris enjoys watching movies with her sister, going to concerts and learning about dialects and accents.
