I wanted to let you know about a special invitation to an event featuring the writer Morris Dickstein at the Museum of the City of New York that I think will be very interesting to the New York-area followers of H-Net.
We are happy to extend our membership discount to students and other constituents of H-Net, and we hope you would be able to pass on this invitation.
Tuesday, November 30, 2010, 6:30pm
Morris Dickstein, Distinguished Professor at the City University of New York, has been described by Norman Mailer as “one of our best and most distinguished critics of American literature.”
Join Professor Dickstein for a discussion of his award-winning book Dancing in the Dark (WW Norton, 2010) and a conversation focusing on how Great Depression-era culture celebrated the “everyman” — from the music of Aaron Copland to the radio comedy “Amos and Andy” to the cartoons of Denys Wortman.
Professor Dickstein will be joined by journalist and historian Robert W. Snyder, director of the Graduate Program in American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark, and contributor to the new book Denys Wortman’s New York.
Reservations required: 917-492-3395 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
