JNBC Public Humanities Fellowship

The John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage at Brown University has named CBMR executive director Monica Hairston O’Connell a 2012 public humanities fellow. The JNBC offers fellowships “to encourage thoughtful reflection on issues of concern to the public humanities and to connect cultural organizations and the public.” Fellows are asked to present on their work, participate in and contribute to intellectual life at the JNBC, and produce an essay, case study, instructional materials, or other documents for publication. Hairston O’Connell’s project proposal, titled “Re/Sounding the Black Music Archive,” asks how “differently situated publics, constituencies, and communities acknowledge, promote, and steward the counter-histories in and of the culturally-specific archive while simultaneously amplifying and innovating around the archive’s connection to contemporary (political and creative) conversations.” She will be in residence at Brown during the fall 2012 semester.
