Everyday Lives, Ordinary People:
A History of East Village Immigrants

A Presentation by the NYU Archives & Public History Program Master’s Degree Candidates

The rich and varied history of the East Village is reflected in its architecture and also in the stories of the many immigrants who lived there. In conjunction with GVSHP’s architectural resource survey of the East Village, graduate students in the Introduction to Public History course in NYU’s Archives and Public History Program will present their semester-long research about the social history of East Village immigrants, filtered through the lives and stories of ordinary residents.

Each team will focus on one particular aspect of East Village life from the mid-nineteenth through the mid-twentieth century. Topics may include: Entertainment, Religion, Housing, Crime and Punishment, Health and Medicine, or Marketing and Food. The students will discuss how they went about their research and will present their findings in an informative lecture/slideshow.
