Research Open House 2023

DEI Seed Grant

The project will provide a greater historical understanding of the long-term implications of redlining as it results in health and economic outcomes. The Color of Law by Richard Gothstein outlines the impacts of redlining. We will specifically look at redlining maps of Clinton Hill and Bedford Stuyvesant to begin to understand how health and economic outcomes have impacted these areas over time. The research will provide greater historical understanding of the context and impacts of biased policies on long-term neighborhood impacts to communities. We’ll be looking at strategies of mapping by Edward Tufte to begin to outline representation techniques. Research assistants will organize this information into a format that can be easily shared with others through an analytical process using clear graphic skills that communicate the research findings.
