Announcing New Mellon Fellows for Reaching New Publics in the Humanities

Students talk in classroom with graduate student

The Simpson Center for the Humanities announces six Mellon Fellows for Reaching New Publics in the Humanities for 2016-17. These University of Washington graduate students join Reimagining the Humanities PhD and Reaching New Publics, a program to connect teaching and scholarship in the humanities to broader publics. The fellowships develop connections between the UW and two-year colleges in the Seattle area, helping scholars and teachers understand the increasingly vital role of two-year colleges in higher education.

As Mellon Fellows, students will partner with a two-year-college faculty member, in a discipline they share, for professional development and mentoring over the course of the year.

The 2016-17 fellows and their UW faculty advisors:

  • Nathaniel Bond (Asian Languages & Literature)
    Advisor: Justin Jesty
  • Anjuli Brekke (Communication)
    Advisor: LeiLani Nishime
  • Bradley Horst (History)
    Advisor: Elena Campbell
  • Alysse Hotz (English)
    Advisor: Sonnet Retman
  • Katherine Morrow (Comparative Literature, Cinema & Media)
    Advisor: Yomi Braester
  • Jacqui Pratt (English)
    Advisor: Candice Rai

The fellows follow the inaugural group in 2015-16, who developed collaborative projects such as a survey of attitudes toward study-abroad programs at South Seattle College.

Congratulations to all!
