Faculty receive Divided City funds for projects examining segregation

Several Washington University in St. Louis faculty and staff members received collaborative awards in spring 2015 through The Divided City, an urban humanities initiative organized by the Center for the Humanities in Arts & Sciences and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts’ College of Architecture and Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design.

The winning projects will conduct research relating to urban segregation and separation, develop interdisciplinary curricula, and build connections between the university and the St. Louis community. The Divided City examines both the history and present-day reality of segregation from a variety of perspectives, including architecture, anthropology, business, economics, landscape architecture, law, public health, social work and urban design.
