An interdisciplinary scholar trained in medicine, engineering, technology and the environment, Dr. Washington is the author of Packing Them In: An Archaeology of Environmental Racism in Chicago, 1865-1954. She documents the ways that Chicago’s poor, working class and ethnic minority neighborhoods have been subjected disproportionately over decades to pollution and other harmful environmental effects.
