Fall 2020 Projects
These research projects were undertaken by undergraduate students enrolled in a capstone research seminar offered by the Federated History Department of the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers-Newark. The capstone was titled HSS 404: Environmental Justice in Postwar America, and it focused on environmental inequality in the post-World War II United States.
For this class each student identified a site where environmental inequality and injustice took place, and then conducted research and wrote a final paper on the site.
Please note that this class took place during the COVID-19 emergency, and the entire semester was conducted online. The students therefore also conducted all their research online as well.
