Dylan Gottlieb studies recent American urban history. He is writing a dissertation about yuppies—young, urban, upper-middle-class professionals—in New York from 1975-1989. More broadly, his work explores metropolitan housing and neighborhood change, urban consumer culture, and the effect of financialization on cities.
Dylan graduated from Vassar College in 2008. In 2013, he received an M.A. in History from Temple University. In 2015, he received an M.A. in History with distinction from Princeton. His work has been published in the Journal of Urban History, Journal of American History, Gastronomica: The Journal of Critical Food Studies, Utne Reader, Journal of American Culture, The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography.
