About the Course Assignment
IAS/E 157AC: “Engineering, Environment, and Society” forefronts the political and social concerns that are of decentered in favor of the technical aspects of environmental engineering. Originally developed as part of the American Cultures Engaged Scholarship (ACES) program, the project developed for IAS/E 157AC allowed for students to explore alternative ways of centering the knowledge produced in the communities that they were engaging with and working with. This resulted in a range of deliverables that were decided with community partners, including a documentary film uplifting the work on the Richmond Greenway to an interactive GIS map of the environmental disparities on Treasure Island.
