Jessica Fletcher is an architecture historian of the twentieth century built environment, focusing particularly on how women adapted and constructed ordinary buildings to serve the needs of working-class women and children in cities. She is currently a PhD Candidate in Art History at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her dissertation, “A Municipal Modernity: Women, Architecture, and Public Health in Working-Class New York, 1913-1950” investigates how reformers built district health centers across New York City from the Progressive Era to the New Deal.
