RECLAIMING URBAN RENEWAL: SYMPOSIUM IN LAWRENCE, MA: Coming up on May, 7, 2016.
How has urban renewal shaped Lawrence, Massachusetts and other industrial cities since the Second World War? This symposium will focus on Lawrence and other mid-size industrial cities affected by federal and state urban renewal programs, the tear-down of aging housing stock, highways being constructed through neighborhoods, and the destruction of long-established immigrant communities.
We are looking for folks who want to present! This is the third history symposium hosted by the Lawrence History Center. More information including the full call for participation can be found here. Deadline to submit a proposal to present: Dec. 4, 2015!
