“Public History in New York City,” ASHP/CML Public Seminar, April 6, 2009

Published March 30, 2011

ASHP/CML is teaming with the Gotham Center for New York City History to present a panel discussion on public history in New York City. It will be held on April 6, 2009, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the City University of New York Graduate Center (365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street, New York, NY). The evening is inspired by the career of our late colleague and collaborator, Adina Back, whose own career as a historian of New York City encompassed scholarship, teaching, political activism, museum exhibits, oral history projects, and radio documentaries. Panelists include:

  • Ruth Sergel, film maker and artist, creator of CHALK – an annual commemoration of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire
  • Ron Grele, oral historian and Professor Emeritus, Columbia University
  • Brian Purnell, historian, Fordham University, and Research Director, Bronx African American History Project
