To-Do List: Jennifer Czajkowski

Jennifer Czajkowski

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.

Jennifer Czajkowski is Vice President of Learning and Audience Engagement at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Jen was kind enough to walk us through a Thursday of work at the DIA. Thanks for supporting Day of PH, Jennifer!
