 This spring, the Honors Program and the Dept of Environmental Studies and Sciences supported an experimental environmental justice design lab developed by Fae Dremock, assistant professor in ENVS Dept. Students produced projects in video, narrative, and a video ‘talking ted.’ These projects can be seen on the “2021: Looking for Justice” page of Roots, an online science outreach journal of the Environmental Studies and Sciences Department: 

 Erika Perkins, Ithacan Multimedia Editor: a video on homelessness in Ithaca.

Ajan Patel, Park Scholar: a video on the issues of green energy in Ithaca (featuring IC alum Marissa Lansing)

Caroline Bissaillon, graduating senior in Documentary Studies and Production: a creative nonfiction piece on water issues in marginalized communities

Cassidy Voorhees-Schroeder, graduating senior in Environmental Studies: a fiction piece based on issues in contamination and health in a marginalized population

Andrea Diaz, graduating senior in Environmental Studies: a “talking ted” on environmental justice and activism (going live on June 15)

Environmental Justice Design lab projects now live! Comment from mstephens on 05/21/21
Some excellent work here! It\\\'s wonderful to see students producing important environmental justice research, reporting, interviewing, and communicating. We need more work like this from a variety of perspectives, for the future of humanity.

It\'s just maddening that Dr. Fae Dremock, who teaches unique classes like this, is among the faculty who are being cut. How short-sighted that decision was, not only for her and the environmental humanities and the whole ENVS department, but for all the other teachers who are fostering this kind of engaged, critical work, the students who have benefited from them, and the future of our society and planet.
