“I Had Ample Opportunity to Notice the City as It Then Was”: Social and Economic Geographies in New York City, 1783–1830
Comment: Joshua Greenberg, Bridgewater State University
I am attaching some information about two new films from Women Make Movies that might be of interest to you:
In honor of Black History Month, Women Make Movies is thrilled to announce the release of REFLECTIONS UNHEARD: Black Women in Civil Rights (http://bit.ly/reflectionsunheard) and LIVING THINKERS: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower (http://bit.ly/livingthinkers).
We’re looking for some new editors to run H-Ethnic. I’ve done what I can to hold down the ship but we’d like to get the position filled with a team of people who know the field much better than I.
I need help with finding scholarly sources for my research. I will really appreciate it if you recommend some books and journal articles on ethnic conflicts and ethnic identity on Afghanistan.

A Special Edition of East European Jewish Affairs
Edited by Anna Katsnelson and David Shneer
The most recent wave of Russian-speaking Jewish immigration to North America (1970s-1990s) incubated a rich panoply of talented artists, filmmakers, musicians, and writers; all of whom conveyed cultural capital from the Soviet Union to the West.
