My name is Lo Faber. I live in New Orleans where I am Assistant Professor of History and Music Industry Studies at Loyola University New Orleans.
I started Crescent City Confidential while completing my Ph. D. at Princeton University. It was a self-motivating, discipline tool, designed to keep me productive, writing a certain number of words per day, getting research tasks accomplished, monitoring my progress. Eventually that Ph. D. dissertation was finished, and I revised it and recreated it as a book: Building the Land of Dreams: New Orleans and the Transformation of Early America, which will be published in October 2015 by Princeton University Press.
Meanwhile, CCC turned into a sort of all-purpose space for me to occasionally blog about history, current events, or my life. Mostly it was just for myself, though sometimes I would send selected people links to things I’d written here. In theory anyone is welcome, in practice not that many people know about it.
