How do archival collections and their commercialization frame contemporary American narratives of belonging? Join us for this roundtable discussion examining the archives of nostalgic American pasts, including memorabilia related to antebellum, postwar affluence, and idealized suburbia. The conversation features Dr. Erin Thompson, Professor of Art Crimes at John Jay College of Criminal Justice-CUNY; Dr. Tim Keogh, Assistant Professor of History at Queensborough Community College (QCC)-CUNY; and Irvin Weathersby Jr., Lecturer of English at QCC-CUNY.
