University of Miami School of Architecture Professors designated U-Link Fellow.

University of Miami School of Architecture Professor Germane Barnes has been designated a U-Link fellow along with an interdisciplinary team that includes representatives from Africana Studies, American Studies, Cancer Research, Education and Psychology, and Geo-science. Their joint proposal The Reproduction of Race in Miami addresses the material effects of racism (and its intersections), in the areas of health and well-being, cultural belonging and equal access to institutions, and the built and natural environments. From police abuse, to neighborhood destruction and displacement, and the myriad of congenital and infectious diseases to which African-descended populations are disproportionately vulnerable, this key societal problem will be researched. Professor Barnes will serve as the coordinator of Interdisciplinary Mapping which will result in the increase of collective knowledge of the various geographic, ethnic, and class sites in the space of "Black Miami."

The other project is “Mapping, Visualizing, and Understanding the 3-D Evolution of Complex Environments” led by U-SoA Professors Carie Penabad and Adib Cure, and UM’s Center for Computational Science.
