    WHAT

    Boardwalk Empire
    The KnickMad MenDownton AbbeyCopperHell on WheelsTURN.  Recent years have seen a surge of historical television dramas that have been both critically acclaimed and hugely popular.  These series can be so engaging and absorbing that it is often easy to forget that the historical detail and authenticity so vividly captured onscreen, one of the main elements of these series’ success, is the result of painstaking research by directors, writers, designers, and… archivists!

    Scan through the credits of any of these series and you will find that they are all indebted to the historical reference services provided by archives and archivists.  Popular media is increasingly recognizing the exceptional value archives bring to the telling of historical narratives, and this in turn is presenting exciting new career opportunities for archivists.

    Join us for an entertaining evening exploring the important role archives and archivists are playing in bringing history to life in popular television and film!  This event will feature a distinguished panel of archivists and historians who have played key consultant roles behind the scenes of three major historical dramas.

    Our panelists will include:

    Dr. Stanley Burns, Elizabeth Burns, and J-Sun Burns of the Burns Archive, which was the primary historical resource used by the team behind the Cinemax/HBO series The Knick, directed by Steven Soderbergh.  Dr. Burns was also a major historical adviser to the series, as detailed in a recent article on Vice.

    Shannon O’Neill, Archivist and Librarian at Barnard College (and formerly an Archivist at the Atlantic City Free Public Library), who provided research services for the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

    Bob Singleton, Executive Director of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, who served as a historical consultant on the 2013 film The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann.
