Williams and Waldman Receive Northeastern University Grant


10.18.21 —Professors Patricia Williams and Ari Ezra Waldman — along with colleagues in Northeastern University's College of Arts, Media and Design — have been awarded a Northeastern University Tier 1 Grant for an innovative research project, “See Something, Frame Something.” The project will investigate how various governments and private companies collaborate to surveil marginalized communities. In addition to publishing its research findings, the project will host a nationwide hybrid convening at Northeastern in 2022 to deepen understanding of this topic and engage additional researchers and artists in conversations.

The competitive Tier 1 Grant program provides funds to support and encourage individual faculty members to form multidisciplinary teams to secure proof of concept, with a goal of successfully competing for future external sponsored research opportunities.
