Social (Trans)Scripts : Experiments with Manuscript Display in Library Exhibitions

My summer practicum took place at an institution with which I have grown quite familiar during my time in the Public Humanities program—Brown’s own John Hay Library (JHL). As the Curatorial Fellow at the JHL, I have worked with various librarians, curators, and staff members to develop their growing exhibitions program. I have delved into library collections related to everything from the Battle of Waterloo to unicorns. It is an enthusiastic generalist’s dream come true.

Violet Sun (CUHK) reflects on summer practicum: Nourishing body and mind in Providence and beyond

I am Violet Sun, MA graduate in Cultural Management from the Chinese University of Hong Kong—though I myself am actually from Beijing, mainland China. Over the course of this summer, I have gotten to know the lovely city of Providence, working as an intern at Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and staying at the Carriage House apartment in the 200+ year old Nightingale Brown House, right next door to the historic John Brown House.

Hannah Duron '15: UPP Teachers Workshop

Last week I had the pleasure of tagging along with Public Humanities Community Fellow Holly Ewald to document and help facilitate her most recent project: the 2015 UPP Arts Teachers Workshop.  The day and a half long program was held in the cheerfully decorated library of the Reservoir Avenue School and attended by some 15 teachers, artists, researchers and scientists with a wide variety of ages, talents and experience.
