Voices of the City: accessibility, reciprocity, and self-representation in place-based community research
[Thursdays, 2:00pm – 4:00pm | CRN: IDS 81620]
  • Tarry Hum (Queens College and The Graduate Center, Environmental Psychology)
  • Prithi Kanakamedala (Bronx Community College, History)
  • Also listed in Psychology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Sociology, History, and Women’s & Gender Studies
Scholars active in place-based or participatory action research are committed to documenting community narratives and neighborhoods. It is central to our work, rooted in social justice, that these communities are not just represented, but that they have equitable stake in the project. Yet practitioners across the city struggle with core issues of accessibility, reciprocity, self-representation, and equity within the communities they work with. Who do place-based researchers represent, and does our work empower communities to tell their own stories? What histories do we contest and perpetuate with this work? And, who gets to participate? This interdisciplinary course combines best or effective practices in Public History, Oral History, and Urban Planning to consider a number of projects in New York City that seek to document communities and narratives about the city that are not traditionally represented.

EP Student Jah Elyse Sayers Talks about Queerness and Space

Current Environmental Psychology student Jah Elyse Sayers was interviewed by The Design Trust for Public Space. Sayers shared their own experiences researching connections between queerness and space, stating, “I think the actual key to creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ communities is going to be making sure LGBTQ+ communities have access to space as well as the power to create and make decisions about spaces. When doing so, we also need to consider the multiple intersections of queer identity: how are you increasing access for and listening to the needs of queer people who are undocumented, queer people who are homeless, queer people who are people of color, queer people who are differently abled, queer people who have a mental health issue…? If your understanding of making safe space for LGBTQ+ people isn’t intersectional, then you’re likely to miss out on a number of strategies to make spaces safer for LGBTQ+ people.”
