Announcing the 2019-2020 Mellon Faculty Fellows

With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and UO Libraries’ Mellon Faculty Fellowships provide incentives and collaborative resources for UO faculty members who want to incorporate library/museum assets into their teaching and research. Projects may include but are not limited to the development and use of new learning objects, exhibitions, research publications, and digital scholarship projects that focus on collections, relevant expertise, and strategic priorities spanning both organizations.

Congratulations to our selected Mellon Faculty Fellows for 2019-2020!
