Mellon Just Futures Grant Secured

The Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab under the auspices of Drs. Rebecca Friedman and Julio Capo have teamed up with FIU’s Extreme Events Institute to secure a ‘Just Futures’ Grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation worth $4.63m over the next three years. An interdisciplinary team of FIU researchers, including the History Department’s Dr. Dan Royles will be studying racial and ethnic disparities in disaster preparation and management and will be looking for solutions to improve a community’s ability to survive and recover when catastrophe strikes.
