Jen Hoyer

Jen Hoyer is an educator with the Brooklyn Connections program. After receiving her MLIS from McGill University, Jen organized the archives of Canada’s oldest public library, worked as a school librarian in Montreal, and developed outreach and education programs for the special library of a non-profit social justice think tank. Her instructional experience also includes providing outreach and training for web-based teaching tools at Artstor, as well as directing a music outreach program in South Africa where she received an award for outstanding teaching from the University of South Africa (UNISA) and produced an award-winning production at the National Arts Festival.

Jen loves connecting individuals with the grassroots history, and when she’s not working with students through Brooklyn Connections she volunteers her time to help manage the archival collection and public programming at Interference Archive in Gowanus. Her writing on ways we can re-think education and access in archives has been published in Radical Teacher and Archival Science.
