This Fall, the Gotham Center is launching a Seminar to bring people together -- for fun and mutual enlightenment -- who are working on New York City's history. Our focus of attention will change annually; the 2003-2004 Seminar will explore the era from the Second World War to now.
Membership in the seminar (limited to thirty people) will be by application. Anyone currently working on some aspect of the city's post-war history who wants to discuss their project with others is eligible to apply, including (but not limited to) college faculty, graduate students, journalists, museum curators, filmmakers and writers. Meetings, held once a month from October through May, will be chaired by Mike Wallace, the Gotham Center's Director. Presenters will be asked to circulate appropriate material in advance of Seminar meetings.
Applications by web only please at the site below.
