The Yale Classics Department is thrilled to report that Jacqueline N. Testamark (Classical Civilizations/History, ‘24) is among the five Yale College seniors awarded 2024 Rhodes Scholarships. The YaleNews announcement included this blurb about her time at Yale and plans for future study:

Jacqueline N. Testamark 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.”
