University Avenue: One Street, A Thousand Dreams

This morning, while doing some preparing for this spring semester’s visual anthropology class, I located an online posting of the locally produced documentary, University Avenue: One Street, A Thousand DreamsThe documentary, which premiered on our local Public Television Station in late 2012, provides a nice historical context for the area in which the Hamline-Midway neighborhood is located.

Once again this semester, my students are going to do short video ethnographies of everyday life in the Hamline-Midway. I’m going to have them watch this documentary to start them off getting situated in the neighborhood.
