2018-19 Andrew W. Mellon Fellow

Excellence in Pedagogy and Innovative Classrooms (EPIC) Program, Humanities Division, UCLA

Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the EPIC-Mellon Seminars in Teaching Excellence develop "innovative approaches to humanities curricula through productive discussions and collaborations between UCLA and community college faculty." As a 2018-19 Mellon Fellow, I assisted in the development of a new, interdisciplinary Medical Humanities major to bridge the campus's Division of Humanities disciplines (English, History, and so on) with UCLA School of Medicine, UCLA School of Public Health, and related programs, and offer a new pathway for community college students into the fields of medicine and humanities. The LACC Collegian interviewed me about this program.
