Starting this month, we are instituting a new blog for the TCP community – I am hoping for TCP to be more regular in reaching out and sharing the excellent work being done by our researchers, students, affiliates, community partners and others.
Writing for Justice in Covid-19 Students in Writing for Justice, a class taught by TCP affiliate faculty Bob Hyland, voluntarily transformed what was an already challenging assignment (i.e., speech writing) by creating a platform for advocacy—they orated their speeches as video for YouTube. Check out their great work:
BY BOB HYLAND In early March 2020, just before COVID-19 disrupted and rearranged so much of our lives, I was honored to attend the 6th Annual Cincinnati Project Symposium at the African American Cultural and Resource Center (AACRC) on UC’s campus. Yes, I was honored to have been invited to speak on a panel with […]
BY MURAL YILMAZ I am an international graduate student from Turkey writing my doctoral dissertation on China’s treatment of the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority community long living in what is now Western China, as internal colonialism for my PhD in Political Science. I joined the UC Gender Equity Research Team that recently completed a two-year […]
BY RODERICK PEARSON When I was an undergraduate student, enduring the painstaking process of applying to graduate school the University of Cincinnati stood out among my other choices for one reason, The Cincinnati Project.

BY ANNE SISSON RUNYAN We might think that research on Cincinnati is just about the local. However, a two-year gender study of the City of Cincinnati Government recently completed by the UC Gender Equity Research Team, an ad hoc group of faculty and graduate students from Political Science and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies I […]
BY KATELYN LUSHER Early on in my career as a PhD student, I knew I wanted to focus on community writing (writing that takes place outside the classroom, often within a specific group), but I wasn’t sure where to start or what I should do. A friend of mine connected me with Chris Wilkey, a professor at NKU who has conducted writing projects in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood since the early 2000s, and my work took off from there.
Symposium Encourages Graduate Student Researchers BY ERICA PAGE Attending the 5th Annual Cincinnati Project Symposium was very rewarding. As a graduate student, I had never presented at or attended a symposium before, so I didn’t quite know what to expect. I thought we would discuss research that I might find interesting, but didn’t expect the […]
BY JENNIFER MALAT As we look forward to the symposium on March 1, I have been reflecting on the lessons from prior symposia. Last year, Yvette Simpson gave the keynote address. She explained that the journey to justice is neither a sprint nor a marathon. Instead, it is a relay in which we work with […]
BY KIMBERLY CONGER One of the challenges for a university situated in the heart of an urban area is to help students see themselves as part of the larger community, not just as consumers or people who are just passing through. This is particularly true in a place like the university of Cincinnati, whose size […]
