Stephen Whiteman and Kate John-Alder guest edited a special forum edition of the journal The Studies in the Histories of Gardens & Landscape Design titled Port Cities and Landscapes of the Sea.
Written in collaboration with the Ramapough Lunaape Nation Turtle Clan, Our Land, Our Stories tells the intertwined story of racial and environmental injustice at the Ringwood Mines/Landfill Superfund Site. We document contested narratives around the site’s contamination by Ford Motor Company in the late 1960s and early 1970s, leading to its listing as a Superfund site in subsequent decades. We unearth the histories and stories that have been buried alongside the dangerous chemicals that remain deep in the soil, just miles from a major drinking water reservoir, and counter the processes of erasure that have made the continuing presence of Indigenous peoples invisible to many.

I emerged from the program with the skills I need to build a career and the confidence to pursue my passions.
