We’d like to congratulate Lior Wolf for his work in and beyond our curriculum. Together with Fadoua Nabih, a History major, Lior won the 2018 John Andrew Award, which is bestowed upon a rising senior majoring in American Studies or History "who exhibits an outstanding work ethic, interest and enthusiasm in that field of study." Lior carries out the Andrew's mission by making crucial connections between academic study and public life. He previously spent time as a policy intern at the Philadelphia-based Clean Air Council, where he helped research and advocate for environmental policy reform within the city. This summer, Lior also connected his work in Professor Alison Kibler’s AMS “Methods” Seminar in a research project conducted by Professor Carla Willard. He brought important knowledge of “digital term mining” to Professor Willard’s project on Marshall McLuhan’s concept of the “global village," which asks questions about digital community-building in our time. Indeed, Professor Willard claims that she “couldn’t have done this work without Lior.” He is pictured here enjoying the end of his summer break with fellow student Sarah Brook in South Park, Colorado.
