What is New is Old: A History of The New School

A lecture and slideshow with Julia Foulkes, Associate Professor of History, The New School.

In 1919, the New School for Social Research opened with courses in the social sciences, social work, and public affairs in New York “because it is the greatest social science laboratory in the world.” The school was not quite a university: it did not offer formal degrees. The founders thought that people would come to the school for “no other purpose than to learn.” It sought to make education relevant to the issues of the day, to remain ever new.

Nearly 100 years later, the school is now a multi-faceted university and a hub in the political, intellectual, and cultural life of New York City and Greenwich Village. This event will be dedicated to commemorating the dynamic history of The New School and the Greenwich Village neighborhood where it resides.

Admission: Free, reservations required at 212.475.9585 x35 or rsvp@gvshp.org

This event is sponsored by the Bachelor's Program for Adults and Transfer Students (BPATS) at The New School and the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.
