|Amiel||Bize||Anthropology||Indexing Environments: Risk, Value, and Experimentation in the Era of Climate Change||
This project examines “index-based insurance” (IBI)—a response to climate-induced risks for farmers and herders in the Global South.

|Sara||Bronin||City and Regional Planning||A Historic Preservation Local Law Census: Where and Why||
People interact with preservation law predominantly at the local level, through historic commissions that opine on proposed rehab projects. Yet there is neither a census of local governments that regulate historic places, nor any scholarship that ties adoption to demographic characteristics, political inclinations, and state enabling authority features. My research will identify where historic districts have been adopted and explore how rates of adoption change from state to state depending on various independent variables.

This project evaluates the effectiveness of School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) to address health disparities among underserved rural youth using de-identified individual-level panel data on patient visits to healthcare providers. The study focuses on 4 high-poverty rural counties in New York, comparing healthcare for children in 16 school districts with SBHCs to those in 22 school districts without. We will assess how SBHCs help poor rural communities by bringing health services directly to children to enhance rural community health.

|Patricia||Campos Medina||Labor Relations Law and History||Displaced and Uprooted: Stories of Belonging Central American TPS Workers' Defiant Struggle for their Right to Stay Home in US||
This project seeks to elevate the stories of workers with TPS (Temporary Protective Status) who despite living in temporality, have engaged in social movement organizing, have participated in non-traditional political mobilization and have become agents for their own struggle for permanency and citizenship rights. It will also explore the engagement of TPS workers in the struggle for immigrant worker justice and union organizing. The survey interview questionnaire covers three dimensions of belonging, or what Campos-Medina 2019 describes as Bounded Integration: (1) Social Economic Status, (2) Civic and Social Movement Engagement, and (3) Collective Group Identity.
