FINDING THE SWEET SPOTS: IN-BETWEEN SPACES IN NEW ORLEANS
This panel (and the book by the same title) turns an architectural lens on a range of narratives and practices in the Crescent City. Our panelists from literature, sociology, and cultural studies examine how in-between spaces (buildings, neighborhoods, squares, and streets) shape and are themselves shaped by the histories and practices of race and gender. Teresa Toulouse analyzes John Galsworthy’s sketch about the St. Louis Exchange Hotel, while Beth Willinger interprets the complicated rise of group “homes” for single women between 1880 and 1950. Angel Adams Parham explores the contested evolutions of Congo Square, and Joel Dinerstein considers how second-line parades create a democracy of the streets. Barbara C. Ewell moderates.
