Douglass Discovery

Spatial justice is a scholarly field that considers how our environments, and the natural and built spaces we inhabit, reflect the inequitable social systems that create and/or maintain them, and explores ways to ameliorate these conditions. As publicly-engaged humanists, Dr. Anette Freytag and Dr. Kristin O’Brassill-Kulfan are researching spatial justice topics that with a view to using the arts, humanities, and creative-placemaking to build community through the AIR Collaborative (Arts Integration Research Collaborative), and organization enhancing inclusiveness in nature and reduce carbon emissions by augmenting the walkability of New Brunswick environments through strategies of creative placemaking and connectivity. Work with Dr. Freytag and Dr. O'Brassill-Kulfan on a range of spatial justice initiatives during spring 2024.

This opportunity is part of the Douglass Faculty Fellows program, which offers Douglass students hands-on research and collaborative projects in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
