CONFERENCE: NEW YORK CITY AND THE NEW DEAL

This day-long conference will address the original New Deal, its rollbacks and revivals in the second half of the twentieth century, and its potential as a model for the future. The conference will consist of four sessions. The Old New Deal will look at what the New Deal accomplished in NYC and how it did so. New Deal Downsides will examine the limitations of the original New Deal, particularly in regard to race and gender. The Slow Passing of the New Deal will focus on attacks on and defenses of New Deal programs from the late-'40s to the '90s. Finally, The New New Deal will speculate on the degree to which a re-crafted New Deal could serve as an organizing model for a liberal comeback.

Participants: Thomas Kessner, author, Fiorello H. LaGuardia and the Making of Modern New York; Frances Fox Piven, author, Why Americans Still Don't Vote; Alan Brinkley, author, The End of Reform: New Deal Liberalism in Recession and War; Joshua B.
