JOIN HISTORIAN PEDRO REGALADO AT THE NEW YORK STATE MUSEUM’S HISTORY MONTH PROGRAMMING LECTURE SERIES
October is New York State History Month
The New York State Museum is pleased to announce esteemed author, historian, and assistant professor Pedro Regalado as a special-lecture-series presenter on Thursday, October 20, 2022. As part of the museum’s New York State History Month, this event will explore New York City’s Latinx small business owners by focusing on the topic, The Bodega: Place, Urban Redevelopment, and Political Power in Postwar New York.
This lecture will revisit the history of Gotham’s Latinx storefronts, in particular bodegas, during the 1950s and beyond to investigate how they helped to shape the community and culture of New York. This in-person only event is free and open to the public. Media are invited to attend.
Pedro A. Regalado is an assistant professor of history at Stanford University where he researches the history of race, immigration, planning, and capitalism in urban America. His first book, Nueva York: Making the Modern City, traces the history of New York City’s Latinx residents throughout the twentieth century. It demonstrates how Gotham’s ability to fulfill its pluralistic, democratic promise increasingly depended on Latinx presence, work, and popular reception. Regalado has been awarded the Michael Katz Award for Best Dissertation from the Urban History Association. He was also a finalist for the Ralph Henry Gabriel Prize for Best Dissertation from the American Studies Association. His work has been featured in the Journal of Urban History, Boston Review, Washington Post, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. Born in the Dominican Republic, he was raised in New York City’s Washington Heights.
