Katie Krupala (MS 2019) Publishes on Race and Uneven Development in Dallas

Recent graduate Katie Krupala has published The Evolution of Uneven Development in Dallas, TX in Human Geography: A New Radical Journal. At UNT, Katie was mentored by urban geographer Dr. Ipsita Chatterjee. Katie's research focuses on the geography and history of race dimensions of urban economic development in Dallas. In brief, white planning and redlining of neighborhoods and urban development has amplified discrimination and segregation over time. Today, the historic South Dallas neighborhood of Joppa, which was established in 1870 by freed slaves, faces increasing economic development pressures embedded in a history of racial injustice. Katie graduated from UNT in May of 2019 and is continuing her research as a PhD student in Geography at The Ohio State University. Photo credit: Dallas Observer (2018).
