What to See at Duke This Week: Bull City 150 Project

Monday, October 30, 2017
Duke Today

Duke scholars from the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity and the Sanford School of Public Policy have amassed 150 years of housing data in Durham, and the results provide visual evidence for changing social and economic patterns over that period. The Bull City 150 project creates innovative approaches to historical maps, including 3D-printed maps of areas destroyed by urban renewal, and augments the data with oral histories, city directories and census releases to tell a story of the Bull City’s history. Tim Stallmann & Mel Norton of the Bull City 150 project will present the work at a Visualization Friday Forum. Noon, D106 Levine Science Research Center.
