We are just about five weeks away from the start of Drexel’s fall term, and I’m beginning to think about how to organize research activities for the year — do we have a big research group like last year? weekly meetings? everyone working together? but perhaps most important: what do people want to work on?

Most of my summer has been spent writing the Asthmatic Spaces book manuscript; most of our 2014-2015 student research team had full-time opportunities elsewhere. But at the end of the spring term the River Wards research team decided to pick things up again in the fall, everyone was still interested.  

So, this is an open call for those interested in joining the EHS research team this year (or even just for the fall term). There are several project possibilities: Continuing to work the River Wards project with the possibility of a few spinoff projects; working on the climate and health workshops that the CUSP team has been running; and more.

We have a lot of data to work with still from last year, but to build stories around what we have, there may be opportunities for interviews and additional fieldwork. 

If you’re interested in working on any of the EHS projects this coming year, please get in touch!
