I was excited to be able to put forward ideas and see them implemented at TCF.
My work compiling, organizing, and digitizing material and publications, and my researching of former trustees and fellows helped create what ultimately became the Archives of the Century at The New York Public Library. In between, I blogged about the dangers of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership and the seeping influence of business on university boards. I also helped design an infographic about the ‘Megalopolis’ phenomenon—-then and now—-using U.S. Census data, and organized an advanced screening of the acclaimed documentary Inequality for All.
“I was excited to be able to put forward ideas and see them implemented at TCF. I thought screening documentaries consistent with TCF’s values would be a great way to reach new audiences, so I helped organize an advance summer screening of the Robert Reich film Inequality for All. Building on that idea, TCF is co-hosting an opening night screening of The Square, a film about the Arab uprisings, in the spring.””
