Ideas Matter: UpstateHistorical

We are very happy to continue our regular feature – Ideas Matter: Checking in with the Public Humanities.

Today we'll be talking about the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony in Woodstock, New York, the role it played in the arts and crafts movement in upstate New York, and plans to develop an app for visitors and history enthusiasts around the site.

We're joined by Thomas A. Guiler is a PhD Candidate in American History in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. Thomas is also the curator and project manager for UpstateHistorical which uses smart phone and GPS technology to provide walking tours and public history infrastructure to key locales across Upstate New York with audio, visual, and textual accompaniment.

The project is made possible in part through a grant from The New York Council for the Humanities.
