Return to Bubbly Creek (UHA Chicago, October 2016)

conferenceThe Urban History Association meets in Chicago this month, so what better place to discussion the urban environment of Chicago? I’ll be participating in a roundtable discussing Dominic Pacyga’s recent book Slaughter House: Chicago’s Union Stock Yard and the World It Made.

The area in question involves the “great open sewer” of Bubbly Creek. My colleague in urban environmental experiences Mike Bryson and I have written about Bubbly Creek in the past and it is a safe bet that I’ll bring that waterway up during our discussion.
