Snakes, a Big Apple and the Garden (of Eden) State
Tuesday, May 10 at 7pm
Join us for a multimedia tour of the decadence and divinity of two New Jersey Utopian communities founded in the 19th century: one for pleasure, the other for purity.
Edith Gonzalez presents two faces of the utopian mind of the 19th century: Ocean Grove, which remains to this day a “religious resort”, while Asbury Park, a secular pleasure zone, has faced more worldly ups and downs. Since their respective founding side by side on the NJ coast, these two communities have been engaged in a dynamic dialogue of morality.
Edith Gonzalez is an historical anthropologist specializing in nineteenth-century systems of power, and a native New Yorker with a deep and abiding love for New Jersey.
