THE NEXT 300: TELLING NEW STORIES ABOUT NEW ORLEANS & ITS PAST

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.
