The Gangs of New York Honors Course

Honors students are invited to enroll in this course of study of nineteenth-century New York City.  Dr. Brian Luskey, Associate Professor of the Department of History, will lead the class to examine the sources, experiences, and consequences of urban change. This course will also analyze the stories people told as they tried to make sense of these chaotic places. There will be a capstone assignment, which will be a collaborative research project. Check out the flyer to read more details about this intriguing class offering. If you’re looking for a small class, focused, and collaborative experience, you don’t want to miss it! The class will be held on TR from 4-5:15 pm in Woodburn Hall. (This course is replacing HIST 393K Slavery and New Media and HIST 493K Ancient Legal History.)
