The press is often called the fourth branch of government (or “fourth estate”) as it is the watchdog of the democratic process. Fellows explored the role the press has in shaping public opinion, the responsibility of journalists, and the challenges of our current age.
While infrastructure refers to something physical, it is undergirded by civic actions—choices and decisions about what to invest in, where, and for whom. Fellows examined two persistent human problems—water and transportation—analyzing choices made historically and their implications for today.
Gentrification provokes considerable debate and controversy over how it affects neighborhoods and those residing in them. Fellows investigated how neighborhoods can be safe and imbued with desirable amenities without displacing long-term residents and businesses--and what that would look like.
