Writing Partner Jackie Testamark selected for Rhodes Scholarship

November 13, 2023

Congratulations to our own Jackie Testamark, who was among the four Yale College seniors selected for a Rhodes Scholarship!

Jackie’s exceptional intellect, compassion, and generosity make her an incredible Writing Partner, and we are fortunate to have her in the Yale College Writing Center, run by the Poorvu Center.

Jackie is majoring in classical civilizations and history, where much of her academic work has centered on examining minority histories in classical art and literature. She has worked as a field archaeologist in Rome with the Gabii Project, contributed to a recent gallery exhibition and associated catalogue with Nicholas Hall, and is a provenance researcher for the Yale University Art Gallery. She co-organizes the Anti-Racism Reading Group for the Department of Classics, developing a curriculum of readings centering race and identity in classical texts and modern scholarship, and last year served as the head delegate of the Model United Nations Team.

In her free time, she enjoys performing with her a cappella group, Out of the Blue.

At Oxford, she will pursue an M.St. in history of art and visual culture.
