Spring 2020 Projects

These research projects were undertaken by undergraduate students enrolled in a senior research seminar for history majors in the Federated History Department of the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers-Newark. The seminar was titled History 490: Environmental Inequality in Postwar America, and it focused on environmental justice 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 one half of the semester was conducted online.
