Here is the ‘save the date’ for the Chapter Meeting that I will be speaking at on November 2nd! I encourage anyone in the NYC area (or anyone willing to take a little road trip) to stop by! It should be a really interesting afternoon, especially the portion with the guided tour of Green-Wood Cemetery, which I am really looking forward to. I will definitely plan on blogging about that tour, and might consider including it in the upcoming revisions of my graduate research (Romanticism and Ruralism).
You can read more about the presentation that I am preparing for this meeting here, and below is the ‘save the date’ for the event. Check it out! Also, you can like the NY Chapter of the AGS here, for more information regarding the chapter meeting as the date draws nearer. An event page has been created on Facebook, so if you plan on attending, ‘join’ the page here!
