Works in Progress at the Autry
Works in Progress at the Autry is a series of workshops bringing together scholars and the public to support the development of new works such as books, films, and journal articles. During each workshop, scholars present their in-progress works to gather questions and feedback.

Place-makers and Place-making: The Story of a Los Angeles Community
RSVP to Belinda Nakasato at email@example.com
This is a joint meeting of Works in Progress at the Autry and the LA History & Metro Studies Group of the Huntington USC Institute on California and the West. WPA welcomes Natalia Molina, Professor of History and Associate Dean at the University of California, San Diego. Professor Molina will discuss her recent project, “Place-makers and Place-making: The Story of a Los Angeles Community,” which explores a century of change in Los Angeles’s Echo Park neighborhood. Her study focuses on six Mexican restaurants that served as urban anchors, including one that was founded by Molina’s grandmother. Please check back in early January for a copy of the workshop paper. Dinner is included.
