A Little Self-Congratulations – Attending the NEH Gilder Lehrman Institute: “Empire City: New York 1877 – 2001”

I just learned that I will have the privilege of attending a National Endowment of the Humanities Summer Seminar, hosted by the prestigious Gilder Lehrman Institute. The seminar is entitled: “Empire City: New York from 1877 – 2001.”  It was an honor and a privilege to be chosen. Today, I booked my (way overpriced) flight to NYC.

I get to spend a week at Columbia University attending lectures and hiking around the city learning about urbanization. I’m so excited! Of course, I’ll be blogging the whole thing.

    Hi. My name is Kevin Brewer and I live in West Tennessee. I have also just learned that I am attending the Empire City seminar (the one in June). I happened upon your blog while looking for more information. I look forward to seeing you there.
