Chicago Studies Quarter: Calumet

Spring 2020

Connections and Disconnections in a Fragmented Landscape

Industry and nature collided in the Calumet region, leading to a landscape of fragmentation. However, nationally significant approaches to sustainable redevelopment are well underway. In this suite of interrelated courses, projects, and excursions, we will explore and contribute to efforts to weave the pieces back together.

  • Urban Ecology in the Calumet (Alison Anastasio)
  • Sustainable Urbanism in Context (Evan Carver)
  • Planning for Land and Life (Mark Bouman - Field Museum*)

*Mark Bouman is a 2019-2020 Chicago Studies Teaching Scholar
