Show and Tell: Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Grant at Work

earl lewis, president of the andrew w. mellon foundation, met with CMU's five a.w. mellon fellows in the humanities.

While Earl Lewis was on campus to deliver the keynote speech at Carnegie Mellon University’s Commencement ceremony, he also had the opportunity to interact with students, researchers and faculty members.

In one meeting, Lewis, president of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, got to learn about the work that the foundation is supporting. He met with Dietrich College Dean Richard Scheines, Scott Weingart, CMU’s digital humanities specialist, and the five A. W. Mellon Fellows in the Humanities, who include Department of English students Jessica Harrell, Susan Tanner and Pierce Williams. They shared their projects and progress with Lewis, a renowned social historian, author and advocate for the humanities and technology-enhanced learning (TEL) in higher education.
