HARTFORD’S URBAN-SUBURBAN HISTORY IN AN OPEN ACCESS BOOK

Thursday, October 29, Trinity College, 12:15 p.m. Common Hour Hallden Hall-North, Grand Room 104. A light lunch will be served.

On The Line, a book in progress, traces how schooling and housing boundaries have shaped metropolitan Hartford over the past century and the struggles of families and activists to cross over, redraw, or erase these powerful dividing lines. To share this story with broader audiences, Dougherty and contributors have created an open-access scholarly book, including interactive maps and oral history videos, under contract with Amherst College Press.
