For my Public Humanities semester practicum, I branched out from my usual sphere of work and applied to a private conservation company.

For the past few years I’ve led a January tour of public humanities students to Washington DC. We’ve visited museums and memorials and, most importantly, talked to curators, educators, and other staff about their work. There’s great work being done in Providence, but it’s always good to get out of town and see what is going on elsewhere.

It’s 2019. We can have a blog for that…
