The Gotham Center is proud to announce that we are sponsoring a yearlong interdisciplinary workshop for scholars researching New York City, open to any faculty member in the twenty-four campuses that make up the City University of New York (CUNY).
The seminar meets on alternating evenings monthly, and will run from September to May. Support has been generously provided by the Advanced Research Collaborative and the Office of the Provost at The Graduate Center. Please send inquiries to the Gotham Center's director, Peter-Christian Aigner.
This well-attended day-long conference addressed 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 gathering built upon Mike Wallace's new book, A New Deal for New York, which urges us to think boldly about rebuilding the entire city, not just Lower Manhattan, and to do so in tandem with other recession-wounded cities and states around the country.
