 Professor Marta Effinger-Crichlow will discuss the evolution of her interdisciplinary course, “Black New York,” in which students explore how people of African descent have shaped the complex identity of New York City over time. She will explore how she uses fieldtrips across the city as well exploration of digital resources to help her students map their own search for a place–a home in the metropolis of New York.

Marta Effinger-Crichlow is Chair and Associate Professor of Theater and Literature at New York City College of Technology. She is the author of Staging Migrations toward an American West from Ida B. Wells to Rhodessa Jones (University Press of Colorado 2014)
