We asked students and staff in the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage to give us a list of “luminaries”: people doing work that, even if it wasn’t explicitly framed as “public humanities,” still informed the ways we think about and value public humanities in theory and practice. In an attempt to learn more about what this exemplary work looks like on a day-to-day basis (and to make this labor more visible than it may typically be), we asked these luminaries to document a typical day at the office.
Steve Lubar, who teaches at Brown’s Center for Public Humanities, was kind enough to share an overview of his day with us. He also has a new book out: Inside The Lost Museum: Curating Past and Present. Check it out! Thanks Steve!
