The Media History of New York represents the work of an undergraduate class. The course was designed around the discussion of readings in common and the production of an online guidebook to the media history of New York. The format of entries was prescribed, but topics were not, and the class designed its own editorial processes and publication, electing this Wiki to contain samples of the work produced. The primary goal of the entire endeavor was a critical, capacious view of media history, a view that addressed yet exceeded questions of representation (how has NYC been represented by different and differently mediated texts?) to enrich our understanding of media and of history.
