NJIT's Gabrielle Esperdy To Participate in Library of Congress Symposium

Gabrielle Esperdy, PhD

Gabrielle Esperdy, PhD, an associate professor in NJIT's College of Architecture and Design, will join scholars of design, photography, commercial vernacular and automotive culture in a symposium titled "Marvels of Roadside and Main Street America: the Itinerant Eye of John Margolies" on March 9 at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.

The event is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are needed. Organized by the Library's Center for Architecture, Design and Engineering, the symposium is intended to bring attention and support to the Library's ongoing acquisition of Margolies' photographic archive of more than 13,000 images, taken from 1972 to 2008, and his important collection of related vintage photographs, postcards and other printed ephemera.
