Elizabeth Mann

National Gallery of Art, Dumbarton Oaks Humanities Fellow

Elizabeth Mann graduated from Harvard College in May 2020 with an AB in history and literature and a secondary concentration in history of art and architecture. She is particularly interested in the history of American art collections and museums, and she wrote her senior thesis on the relationship between the Museum of Fine Arts and Boston’s growing immigrant population at the turn of the twentieth century. While at Harvard, Mann served as a student tour guide at the Harvard Art Museums, and for two summers she worked as a research intern in the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. 

At Dumbarton Oaks, Mann helps with K–12 educational programming centered on the museum’s world-class collections and historic garden. This includes developing online resources for teachers, students, and families and delivering virtual lessons that actively engage students through close-looking at art, facilitated discussions, and activities.
