Save the Date: Public History Event

2009 January 7
by Ellen Noonan

Mark your calendars…ASHP is teaming up 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 Monday April 6, 2009, from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Graduate Center. The evening is inspired by the career of our late and dearly missed colleague, 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, Professor Emeritus, Columbia University
  • Madhulika Khandelwal, Director, Asian/American Center, Queens College
