Public historian, Luke Boyd, will present an urban exploration program about sites in NJ and the tri-state area. Participants will learn about abandoned properties, safety and ethics of UrbEx.

When many think of adventure and exploration, exotic locations and ancient civilizations may come to mind. However, urban exploration, or “UrbEx,” can happen in our backyards. There’s a lot that can be learned from uninhibited and abandoned landscape. In this session, through case studies from the tri-state area, participants will examine abandoned properties and the narratives that accompany them. The value of learning about these abandoned spaces in our backyards as well as the safety and ethical aspects of UrbEx will be discussed.

Luke Boyd is a public historian, actor, and museum professional. In his career he has had the privilege to work and study at some of America’s most storied places. As a living historian, Luke has brought personages of the American past to life, from the obscure to the more renowned. Luke has additional interests in urban exploration, cinematic history, and American commemorative culture.

This program is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
