Making the West Side: Community Conversations on Neighborhood Change is a multi-year  project funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities that brings together scholars, activists, neighborhood residents, and other stakeholders to investigate the history of neighborhood change on Chicago’s West Side and connect those histories to contemporary issues and concerns. The website Making the West Side (launching soon) seeks to connect the many communities within the Chicago West Side neighborhood through conversations surrounding West Side history and the neighborhood’s continued change.
