Welcome aboard Jenelle Davis
Normally we hate the phrase "welcome aboard" when hiring a new person to the the team, but based on Jenelle's photo, we feel it is appropriate this time (only)! So ... Fresh Press is pleased to announce that Jenelle Davis has joined us for this fall 2017 semester to help with outreach and research.
Jenelle proudly hails from Saskatoon, Canada. She holds both a BA and MA in Art History from McGill University and the University of Toronto respectively and is working towards a PhD in art history from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a focus on the politics of memory and a diverse range of commemorative practices and the memorialization of traumatic events. Jenelle has worked as a curator, art critic and expert piñata-maker to name a few of her professional endeavors and has spent several years working, traveling and studying abroad. Jenelle is dedicated to promoting art as social practice, redefining the borders of public art, fostering broader inclusivity and participation in the arts, and to supporting Canadian hockey.
