A People's History Of Uptown

By UIC

Working with graduate and undergraduate students as well as community members in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, a new digital research and curricular project led by University of Illinois Chicago professors Anna Guevarra and Gayatri Reddy chronicles almost 200 years of history in the North Side community.

The project, which started in 2017, originally centered on the history of global Asian migrations to Chicago, but as Guevarra and Reddy did archival research for the project and engaged with community organizers in Uptown, their focus began to shift.

As a result, the project expanded to include the rich, deep and long histories of multiethnic people's displacements as well as their resistance to such efforts, and subsequent emplacements in Uptown.

The project visualizes and narrates these stories, beginning with the displacement of the Potawatomi and other Native communities at the founding of Chicago in 1833, as well as subsequent urban renewal policies over the course of the last century that have led to disputes over land, housing, health care and education.

More Homeopathy Hokum

By Blake Murdoch, Stuart Carr and Timothy Caulfield/BMJ Open
Of the interventions advertised, few are scientifically supported; the majority lack evidence of efficacy, and some are potentially harmful.

When We Were Vaccine Guinea Pigs

I have no recollection that my younger brother was vaccinated in that first experiment. Perhaps Mom and Dad designated him as a back-up son in the bullpen just in case the vaccine gave me the disease.
