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.
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
Ephemeral New York
Flaming Pablum: Vanishing Downtown
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.
