Hi, and welcome to ENGL 284: New York City in the 1940s (Fall 2014).  For students enrolled in the course, I’ll be using this blog to post occasional interesting materials and information about some of the historical context for our reading and viewing.  Come the end of the semester, I’ll also ask you to post your research projects to the blog. (You can see examples of student research projects from previous semesters by clicking on links above or to the left.)  In the meantime, you may want to scroll through some of the archives to get a sense of the kinds of things we’ll be discussing this semester.
