Morris Dickstein, author of Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression and distinguished professor emeritus at the GC, speaks with four scholars who explore how and why New York City became a national and global citadel for the arts in the 20th century.

Foulkes (A Place for Us: West Side Story and New York), Fran Leadon (Broadway: A History of New York City in Thirteen Miles), Christoph Lindner (Imagining New York City: Literature, Urbanism, and the Visual Arts, 1890-1940), and Robert A. Slayton (Beauty in the City: The Ashcan School).
