I’m excited to be participating in a panel at an upcoming conference, Dreamland Pavilion: Brooklyn and Development, October 2-3 at Kingsborough Community College. I’ll be presenting my paper, “Where Will the Rocket Go?: Performance, Amusement and the Coney Island Development Debate,” on a panel of presenters speaking about Coney Island.
Outside of some usual pre-conference jitters, my primary source of excitement is the enormous amount of fantastic speakers covering really important topics. I’ll be reporting back once I’ve digested the conference and its happenings.
