This digital humanities project examines the emergence of bohemian and avant-garde culture through a study of gender, race, class, and nationalism in modernity. With a wide-ranging chronological and geographical scope, the selected bohemias represent diverse spatial, aesthetic, economic, political, and social histories. Our work looks at urban spaces where bohemian culture is found, analysing its intersections with bourgeois and marginal cultures.
In our classes, which are available depending up the semester, range from 1st year students to 4th year students, participants study primary source documents, secondary texts, and graphic novels. Students maintain the website, create interactive maps and other digital content, record oral histories, and actively use social media to explore bohemian/hipster cultures found in New York City and beyond.
