From Fall 2017 to Fall 2018, artists, archivists, scholars, historians, oral historians, and researchers from across New York City met as The City Amplified working group. It was a space for us to share our professional practices, think about future collaborations, and celebrate each other's work. This publication comes out of those dialogues and addresses the way we think about oral histories, radical archives, and public engagement today. The project was generously supported by the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research at the Center for Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
