LUNCHTIME LECTURE: Erie Canal 3.0

July 20 @ 12:00 pm

Join us for a free lunchtime lecture, “Erie Canal 3.0: What We Can Learn from Facebook and Ancestry Users about New York State’s Place in the World, Past and Present.” Anne E. Mosher, associate professor of geography at Syracuse University and faculty chair of the Maxwell Program in Citizenship and Civic Engagement, will discuss the research she has conducted on online memories and stories about the Erie Canal, and invite the audience to discuss the significance that uploaded stories and memories have for them and other New Yorkers. This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Public Scholars program. Free parking is available in Museum-designated spots in the lot across Erie Boulevard under routes 81 and 690.
