Visual and Storytelling Ethnography of COVID-19 Mapping Project in Latinx Communities

The goal of this project is for student interns to create an Archive with oral histories and narratives, sounds, and ephemeral materials from Latinx communities in relation to the Climates of Inequality exhibition. Student interns, with the help of our community partner, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO), are harnessing local knowledge to answer the following question: How is COVID-19 affecting Latinx communities in the Chicagoland area and how is this intersecting with environmental pollution in their neighborhoods?
