Today we discussed newspaper research in historic and contemporary newspapers, including the historic New York Times, the Brooklyn Eagle, and other news sources from City Tech library databases, which you can access from home with the barcode from your college ID card.
Midterm presentation guidelines are now on the course site. Midterm presentations take place on Tuesday 10/23 and Thursday 10/25.
In class on Tuesday we watched the documentary film Brooklyn Matters and discussed potential themes that have emerged from our site visits and archival research so far. Part 2B of the archives site report is due on Tuesday, October 16. On Thursday, October 18, please be prepared for another site visit to the Barclays Center/Atlantic Yards site. We will meet in our classroom and walk together.
