    Panel and discussion focusing on the film 'Burden of Eden'

    When: Oct 28 2014

    Where: Room E-242

    The Urban Studies committee is sponsoring a panel and discussion focusing on the film "Burden of Eden," which is being made by our own William Kelly.

    The panel and discussion will take place in two parts on Tuesday, October 28th. First, from 1-2, and then from 2:15 to 3:15 to accommodate classes. It will be in Room E-242. The film examines race, housing, and development through the lens of Stuyvesant Town, a public/private housing development in lower Manhattan. William Kelly will show pieces of the film, now in production, and we will be inviting speakers to explain the historical and political context and to discuss questions that the film raises.
