Yankee Stadium

Teresa Collins (Thomas A. Edison Papers)

Why did the Stadium cross the road? In this seminar we develop multiple perspectives on the history of Yankee Stadium and its epic journey from "The House that Ruth Built" to its current home in the Bronx, New York. We will observe and analyze a number of related themes and issues, including relationships between public finance, private enterprise, and urban development. The flexible, situational character of change and tradition is examined as well. Students will explore potential topics and methods for their own research development.
