Explore Senior Fellow and History Major Jordan McDonald's Final Project

The History Department congratulates Jordan T. McDonald, one of five senior fellows in the class of 2021, who has completed and defended her senior fellowship project. Entitled "Trust and Believe: Essays on the Black Indoors, Popular Skepticism, and the Critical Inheritance of the 'House Slave'," this ambitious interdisciplinary collection of essays, visuals, and music draws in part on Jordan's studies in the History Department. Senior Fellows dedicate their final year of study at Dartmouth to the pursuit of a self-designed independent project of significant intellectual and imaginative scope. Jordan, who will be entering graduate studies in English literature at Harvard University in the fall, is also a Beinecke scholar and Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow.
