For those outside the class who are interested in joining the conversation online, this week we are reading:
Anzia Yezierska’s 1925 novel, Bread Givers, which tells the story of Sara Smolinsky, a Jewish immigrant girl struggling to make her way in the world.
Two articles from The Public Historian.
— Ruth J. Abram, “Kitchen Conversations: Democracy in Action at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.” The Public Historian 29, No. 1 (Winter 2007): 59-76.
— Maggie Russell-Ciardi, “The Museum as a Democracy-Building Institution: Reflections on the Shared Journeys Program at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum,” The Public Historian 30, No. 1 (Winter 2008): 39-52.
And, finally, we are analyzing the content on the Lower East Side Tenement Museum’s website.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
