Trial: American Consumer Culture

28 08 2014

Through September 23, we have trial access to American Consumer Culture:

Market Research and American Business, 1935-1965 provides a unique insight into the American consumer boom of the mid-20th century through access to the complete market research reports of Ernest Dichter, the era’s foremost consumer analyst, market research pioneer and widely-recognised ‘father’ of Motivational Research.

The collection is a treasure trove of information on some of America’s best known brands, containing thousands of reports commissioned by advertising agencies and global businesses in a booming era for consumerism, ‘Madison Avenue’ advertising and global brands on consumer goods ranging from tobacco and broadcasting to cars and hotels. Use the fully searchable interactive chronology to discover fascinating facts and events in the history of American consumerism; gain a deeper insight into Dichter and the world of market research through essays and further resources; and view hundreds of advertising images in the Ad Gallery.

GIS Practicum to Return in Spring 2015

26 08 2014

The GIS Practicum, Introduction to GIS Using Open Source Software (QGIS), will return in spring 2015. This fall I’ll be revising the tutorial with new content based on feedback from past participants, and will update the exercises based on the new 2.0 interface that QGIS introduced this past year. This will be the first major rewrite of the content since the workshop was introduced three years ago.

Prospective participants can fill out a short form on the GIS Practicum page if they would like to be notified when registration for the workshops opens at the end of January. In all likelihood there will be one day-long session each month on a Friday in March, April, and May. Current CUNY graduate students, faculty, and staff, and Baruch undergraduates are eligible to sign-up.
