2019 Summer Research Assistant
As a rising fourth year student in the architecture school, Tarin’s interests lie in the intersection of cultural analysis and spatial-temporal studies. His interdisciplinary background with architecture/design and African American studies encourages him to question how constructed narratives of history and its long-lasting effects are composed in public realms such as museums, exhibitions, architecture, land configurations, historic preservation sites, and literature. Tarin plans to work at a design firm, attend graduate school, or apply to law school with the intention of pursuing a track in property law in order to change historically discriminatory zoning laws. This summer, Tarin will be working on the Notes on the State, a six-part podcast series produced by the Carter G. Woodson Institute and on developing a digital archive of the Julian Bond Papers project.
