- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assessment aids in the processes of assisting students in locating, literally and figuratively, where power is enacted geographically in Seattle. Capital accumulation and racism since the late 1800s, as well as the de facto expulsion of almost all Native people, has combined in Seattle with anti-Asian and antiblack residential segregation. The question is, how? This spatial approach to learning can be used, for example, when examining the proximity of African American and Asian American neighborhoods. Most students have not considered why the International District (which contains Chinatown and other Asian American neighborhoods) is adjacent to the Central District (the once mostly African American neighborhood of the city). When students see their mapping in conjunction with reading secondary sources and having discussions, their comprehension is deepened.
