The Paul Peck Humanities Institute at Montgomery College proudly announces the selection of eleven Montgomery College faculty as smithsonian faculty fellows for 2013.

The 2013 Fellows were selected via a competitive application process. They represent a variety of disciplines and all three campuses. Please join us in congratulating these collegues: Antonio del Castillo-Olivares, Biology (RV); Grace Graham, Art (GT); Evelyn Gonzalez-Mills, Counseling (TPSS); Michael LeBlanc, English (TPSS); Allyson Lima, Spanish (RV); Lincoln Mudd, Art (TPSS); Rebecca Portis, English (RV); Rebecca Razavi, English (GT); Patricia Ruppert, Philosophy (RV); Marianne Szlyk, English (RV); and Vidya Vijaysekharan, Art (RV).

The 2013 theme is: Forging America's Identity: Critical Encounters and Cross-Cultural Exchange. Fellows commit to a year-long professional development experience which includes visits to the Smithsonian and discussions with Smithsonian curators and educators. They conduct research to develop museum-based projects to implement in a course they currently teach. They collaborate with their cohort on teaching methods, exercises and ideas. Fellows tell us that the interdisciplinary cohort learning provided by the Fellowship is terrific. And, they are delighted to see how their students respond to the museum exhibits.

MC student benefit tremendously from the program. Many MC students report never before having visited a Smithsonian museum - this experience provides them access to the museums and them opportunity to think critically, question, and learn actively.

For more information about the Fellowship or the Paul Peck Humanities Institute, please contact director Sara Bachman Ducey (240) 567-7333.
