FELLOW PRESENTATIONS: African American Studies and anthropology major Amber Jones '09, right, presents her research titled "Steal Away (to Jesus): The Origins of the African American Spiritual and Notions of a Black Collective Consciousness" during the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows Presentations July 26 in Fisk Hall. The nine fellows spent six weeks this summer participating in an intensive seminar taught by Mellon Fellows Kimberly Brown and Stéphanie Larrieux, and a writing workshop taught by Krishna Winston, Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows Coordinator.

Wendell Ramsay of the City College of New York, delivers his talk, titled "But a Rite of Sacrifice: African American Interpretation of Nurse Eunice Rivers and the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment" to the audience.
Religion and African-American Studies major Jason Harris '09 presented his research titled "White Bodies in Black Sacred Spaces."
American Studies major Katherine Rodriguez '09 speaks on her topic, "Viva la Republica: Media Representations of the Puerto Rican Movement in the 20th Century"

The students' independent research has been guided by the reference librarians at Olin Library. Every week has been enlivened by a dinner downtown with a faculty member or members of the Middletown community and by a field trip. In addition, the fellows also went to Williams College for a two-day GRE-preparation workshop and had workshops on managing time and on using EndNote software. Other Wesleyan Mellon Mays from the 18th Cohort include Devaka Gunawardena '09, William Franklin '09, and Julius Hampton '09. (Photos by David Pesci)
