Volume 7, Number 2 (2021) Life at the Confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers

Special Issue Introduction

This special issue of Alpenglow: Binghamton University’s Undergraduate Journal, “Life at the Confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers,” is a collection of essays from first-year students at Binghamton University who participated in a year long course sequence within the research immersion program, the Source Project. The collection includes several genres of writing that reflect the various modes of study we used to learn about the “place” of Binghamton, NY. A goal of this course is to help students see Binghamton from various historical and contemporary perspectives and to examine how the people who have resided or worked in the area have affected the city’s development. Such vantage points render legible the nuances of the Binghamton area and teach students how to translate the course’s approach of study to any new place they find themselves residing in or curious about later in life.
