CITY OF PRINT: NEW YORK AND THE PERIODICAL PRESS



(June 14-June 26, 2015)



College faculty are invited to participate in a two-week Summer Institute,
“City of Print: New York and the Periodical Press,” sponsored by the
National Endowment for the Humanities (
http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/City_of_Print).  The institute will offer a
comprehensive view of the shifting cultural politics of the city during the
nineteenth and twentieth centuries as told through the disparate voices of
New York’s periodical press. As an institute participant, you will take
part in discussions led by cultural historians, archivists, and experts in
the fields of American literature, art and urban history, and periodical
studies; participate in hands-on sessions in the New-York Historical
Society’s periodicals collection; visit sites important to the rise of New
York’s periodical press, such as Newspaper Row, Gramercy Park, the
Algonquin Hotel, and the Condé Nast archives; and attend Digital Humanities
workshops. Sessions will be held at New York City College of Technology,
Baruch College, John Jay College, The Schomburg Center for Research in
Black Culture, and the New-York Historical Society.

ELIGIBILITY: College Faculty (full-time and part-time). Three slots will be
reserved for qualified graduate students.
