UP597 UEE - Workshop in Urban Environmental Equity

Overview:

This workshop will investigate dynamic relationships between stream contamination and social vulnerability in the Lincoln Park-Milwaukee Estuary and Grand Calumet Research areas near Chicago. Students will work to develop and execute a research plan to produce new knowledge that will (A) identify local shifts in patterns of environmental, place and social vulnerability by modifying existing indices developed for use with geographical information systems (GIS), and (B) describe shifts in attitudes and perceptions during active remediation efforts using community video as an interview method. Students will make several trips to field sites in the Chicago area, and should be prepared to be productive, independent contributors to group projects and discussion.
