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.
Christina Bevilacqua documented three days of work on her To-Do List. Christina is a cultural curator who uses the arts and humanities to cultivate conversation among diverse publics. She is presently the Conversationalist-in-Residence at the Trinity Repertory Company in Providence, and she has previously worked at the Providence Athenaeum (where she ran a popular Athenaeum Salon series). You can learn more about her work in this recent Boston Globe profile. Thanks Christina!
