As contributors explore their sites, we are asking them to share their insights into studying the material world of segregation – discoveries, emergent questions, challenges, and the role of collaboration in their work. We are interested in the similarities and the differences in how contributors engage with their sites, and their findings. In future posts we will investigate points of intersection and divergence and ask what they reveal about site-based research, and the material realities of racialized spaces in St. Louis.
