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.
