Tacoma, social stratification
Social stratification, with its impacts on people and society, isn’t a new concept for me. But due to the extractive methods of the higher education system, it has been a struggle in most of my classes to do Tacoma-based research rather than focusing on Bellingham. So throughout this quarter, I have been working to connect the broader themes I’ve learned about social stratification with Tacoma-specific research. This project is in the form of an illustrated book which explores the various effects of social stratification on the health and well-being of Tacoma communities. Throughout this paper, I will show some of the key information about my research, my process and methodology, some of the illustrated pages I’ve made, my sources and research done per page, and what I’ve learned from this experience overall.
