From Progressive Planning To Progressive Urbanism: Planning's Progressive Future And The Legacies Of Fragmentation, Stephen Atkinson, Joshua Jorgensen Oct 2014

From Progressive Planning To Progressive Urbanism: Planning's Progressive Future And The Legacies Of Fragmentation, Stephen Atkinson, Joshua Jorgensen

Conflux

Since the 1980’s numerous urban scholars have taken to proclaiming one city or another as being ‘progressive.’ Planning websites like American Planning Association, Planetizen or Progressive Planning Magazine are inundated with examples of progressive planning in action. The examples of touted progressive cities are many: Burlington, Berkeley, Cleveland, Boston, L.A., Chicago, Cincinnati, Portland, Minneapolis, Austin, Denver, and Seattle have all been championed as progressive cities. Most of them come with brackets: Boston was progressive [under Mayor Flynn]; Chicago was progressive [under Mayor Washington]; Burlington was progressive [under Mayor Sanders]. There is also no shortage of descriptors about what ...


Urban (R)Evolutions: Museums, Spectacle, And Development In Reform Era China, Hope St. John Oct 2014

Urban (R)Evolutions: Museums, Spectacle, And Development In Reform Era China, Hope St. John

Conflux

Over the past thirty years, China’s museum sector has experienced exponential growth with the expansion of thousands of new museums, both public and private. This paper seeks to understand this growth as an urban phenomenon that is simultaneously reconfiguring urban space and citizen subjectivities by framing the emergence of new and increasingly spectacular exhibitory institutions in China within the context of political, economic, and cultural policy shifts. Through the examination of the evolution of the museum in China and its symbolic relevance from its origins in an era of semi-colonialism into the contemporary period and recent trends of property-led ...

Gray Wolves In Washington: Possible Habitat And Corridors For Movement, Joey Bisig Jun 2013

Gray Wolves In Washington: Possible Habitat And Corridors For Movement, Joey Bisig

GIS Certificate Projects

Introduction:Increasing the Gray Wolf (Canis lupus) population in Washington state plays two important roles. First, they are an important part of many ecosystems as they are a keystone species. This means that they are a top predator and their absence has reverberating effects on the rest of the ecosystem. As seen at Yellowstone State Park in Wyoming, elk populations ran rampant for many years and reached their peak of roughly 25,000 individuals in 1988 (Kauffman et. al. 2008). The issue lies in the grazing that these elk partake in of a vital habitat producer, Aspen saplings. In 1995 ...

Environmental Justice (Or Injustice?) In Pierce County, Atalie E. Moore Jun 2013

Environmental Justice (Or Injustice?) In Pierce County, Atalie E. Moore

GIS Certificate Projects

Introduction:According to the EPA, environmental justice is the fair treatment of all people, regardless of demographic characteristics, with respect to environmental issues (2012). However, environmental injustice often occurs. Case studies have shown that minority populations and those living in poverty shoulder a disproportionate burden of environmental problems (Blodgett 2006; Bullard et. al. 2007; Mennis 2002). A socioeconomic status (SES) index shows the disparity between advantaged and disadvantaged communities.

The maps below consider the distribution of cultural spending in Tacoma by the Tacoma Arts Commission (TAC) in terms of geographic distribution, amount spent, and programmatic focus. For context, spending is presented against backdrops of average income, population density, and average educational attainment for adults over 25.

Depression In Pierce County, K.D. Carlyle Jun 2011

Depression In Pierce County, K.D. Carlyle

GIS Certificate Projects

Introduction:This project was thought up through my interest in Psychology. Since I cannot actually map physical locations of where depression comes from, I was interested in possible demographics that could cause (not always does) depression. I was able to compile a list of contributing demographics through a literature review. Through my literature review, demographics that were highlighted were that of socioeconomic status or social standing (class). Those with a lower SES were more likely than those who had a higher SES for depression. The purpose of this research was to be able to identify areas within Pierce County that ...
