CTSP Alumni Updates

We’re thrilled to highlight some recent updates from our fellows:

Gracen Brilmyer, now a PhD student at UCLA, has published a single authored work in one of the leading journals in archival studies, Archival Science: “Archival Assemblages: Applying Disability Studies’ Political/Relational Model to Archival Description” and presented their work on archives, disability, and justice at a number of events over the past two years, including The Archival Education and Research Initiative (AERI), the Allied Media Conference, the International Communications Association (ICA) Preconference, Disability as Spectacle, and their research will be presented at the upcoming Community Informatics Research Network (CIRN).

Originating in the 2017 project “Assessing Race and Income Disparities in Crowdsourced Safety Data Collection” done by Fellows Kate Beck, Aditya Medury, and Jesus Barajas, the Safe Transportation and Research Center will launch a new project, Street Story, in October 2018. Street Story is an online platform that allows community groups and agencies to collect community input about transportation collisions, near-misses, general hazards and safe locations to travel. The platform will be available throughout California and is funded through the California Office of Traffic Safety.
