The Accountability of Scientific and Medical Practices
Annual Meeting of the Society for Literature and Science
11 - 14 October, 2001
Hyatt Regency Buffalo, Buffalo, NY
Yes, Buffalo! The "City of No Illusions" or, according to USA Today, the "City with a Big Heart"! If our warmth and accessibility doesn't melt the permafrost, perhaps our celebrated modernist architecture--from Louis Sullivan's magnificent early skyscraper, The Prudential Building, to Richardson's Buffalo Psychiatric Center, to Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House (and four others!)-- will do the trick. Or how about the world-class Albright-Knox Art Gallery? Or this year's centenary celebration of the 1901 Pan-Am World Exposition? And a citywide grid created by no other than Frederick Law Olmsted culminating in magnificent Delaware Park.
Still not moved? If you're a technology buff, before Silicon Valley, Buffalo was "The City of Light": the first electrified city in America and the showplace for the wonders of the new 20th Century as captured by the amazing Tower of Light--the centerpiece of the new century's inaugural Pan-Am Exposition in 1901--caught on film by no other than Thomas Alva Edison himself. From the "City of Lights' to the would-be "City of Bytes," Buffalo has architecture, technology, artifacts, and a rich history of representations of nature, race, gender, and class (from the Pan-Am to internationally acclaimed Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center) to commend itself to the most cosmopolitan academic. Plus bars that stay open to 4 am, more theater than most other cities in America could even imagine, and music that can't be beat for quantity, quality, or variety--what are you waiting for?
