Summer Research Intensive Program

Transforming Plantations to Deserts


During the summer of 2019, the Center for Academic Equity will host a 5-week research program and will invite research proposals from all academic disciplines at Tulane that engage the topic of environmental racism broadly understood and the discriminatory impact of environ­mental policy, industrial action, or structural inequalities related to natural resource allocation, climate change, industrial waste, food desertification, and pollution. Students will investigate their chosen research ques­tions within a broad frame and utilize diverse methodologies with discrete research designs to be successfully implemented and reported within the five weeks.
