Dr. Goldfield

Hi Everyone,

I would like to introduce our latest expert of the week, the distinguished Dr. David Goldfield!

Dr. Goldfield will be your guide to the history of the environmental movement and the topic of “Green Cities.”

Dr. Goldfield is the Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte and has published sixteen books to date.

His books detail various aspects of American and Southern (American) history.  His works include: America Aflame,  The American Journey and Cotton Fields and Skyscrapers.

Professor Goldfield has lectured across Germany and is the Editor of the Journal of Urban History.  He currently serves as a Distinguished Lecturer for the Organization of American Historians and will be, I am sure, happy to answer any and all of your questions.

He will also join us in Germany for the final events in various German cities and the student conference in Berlin! Feel free to contact him!

I hope that you have a great week!

When the going gets tough, the tough go green.
