Seminar 2: The Peopling of New York Spring 2013

Professor: Margaret Chin
ITF: Pamela Burger
Campus: Hunter College

This site for the public-facing project for Margaret Chin’s Seminar 2. At the request of the professor and students, the course site, used for weekly blog posts, assignments, and course information, was kept separate. This site features four brief documentaries that explore different aspects of the two Chinatowns of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Initially, the assignment asked students to document the different responses to Hurricane Sandy, but many groups had trouble finding enough information. In the end, the Manhattan groups profiled Chinatown, whereas the Brooklyn groups focused more on responses in Coney Island and Bensonhurst to Sandy. Each group was in charge of their video’s dedicated webpage, and the entire class collaborated on designing the home page.
