Save the Date/Call for Papers - Researching New York 2013
November 14 & 15, 2013
University at Albany, SUNY
The organizers of the Researching New York Conference once again invite proposals for presentations on any aspect of New York State history —in any time period and from any perspective. This annual conference brings together historians, archivists, public historians, graduate students, teachers, documentarians, and multimedia producers, to share their work on New York State history. We especially encourage submissions that reflect on the long and complicated history of religion in New York, including intersections with the secular, civic, and public life of its citizens. See details and submission guidelines at http://nystatehistory.org/researchny/rsny.html. Deadline for submissions is July 1st.
"The Gods of Gotham: Religion and the Making of New York, 1800 to 1950." by Robert Orsi, Grace Craddock Nagle Chair in Catholic Studies, Department of Religious Studies, Northwestern University.
New York City is generally thought of as the epitome of American modernity and so it was—but it was also a rich landscape of religious practice, innovation, and conflict. Religion did not just happen in New York City; it happened through the city, in the media of its streets, shadows, and stoops, and in exchanges among people of all the world's religions. New York has never been a secular city—or perhaps the religious history of New York demands a rethinking of what "secular" means. Virtually every major development in American religious history had if not its origins in New York then its most public and extravagant expression. This lecture invites a rethinking of American urbanism as a profoundly religious reality.
