Let's Get Lost (New York)



You likely have read about this elsewhere. But! Cyrus R. K. Patell and Bryan Waterman have organized a most impressive two-day conference for tomorrow and Saturday titled Lost New York, 1609-2009. The entire program is here. The conference is sponsored by the Department of English and Humanities Initiative at NYU.

Of interest:

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM: BLOGGING THE APOCALYPSE: NEW MEDIA, NEW GENRES, AND THE LITERATURE OF A LOST CITY

Sukhdev Sandhu (New York University), moderator

Panelists:

Lost City
Ephemeral New York
Flaming Pablum: Vanishing Downtown
Bowery Boogie

Pub crawl haters! FroYo! FroYo! We want a bank branch! We want a bank branch! Starbucks are good for NYC! Starbucks are good for NYC!

Kidding! This will be an invigorating discussion... I won't be in town for it this Saturday. However, Bryan Waterman was nice enough to talk to me and Jeremiah Moss about blogging and what not in advance.

Why aren't you and JM in the panel? Have you both been lost, too?

Bryan said...

It's because I like pink shirts so much. I couldn't bring myself to invite him, the h8ter.

Jeremiah Moss said...
