In the year of the city’s Tricentennial—after two years of conflict over Confederate monuments and decades of individual efforts to tell silenced and forgotten histories about the city’s past—there is a vibrant movement afoot to produce new, more inclusive histories of New Orleans. Join historian Mary Niall Mitchell from the Midlo Center for New Orleans Studies at UNO as she moderates a discussion with Laine Kaplan-Levenson, producer and voice of WWNO’s popular podcast Tripod: New Orleans at 300 (in collaboration with The Historic New Orleans Collection and the Midlo Center); Sue Mobley from Tulane’s Small Center for Collaborative Design and co-leader of the Paper Monuments project; and Dr. Elizabeth Steeby from UNO’s English Department, co-editor of the People’s Guide to New Orleans, part of a series of city guides to be published by University of California Press.
Sponsored by the Ethel & Herman L. Midlo Center for New Orleans Studies at the University of New Orleans and the UNO Department of History.
