Looking Back, Moving Forward: The Effects of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast

 

Monday, August 18, 2014

San Francisco, California

San Francisco Marriott Marquis

Panel sponsored by Critical Sociology

The official journal of the Association of Critical Sociology

Panel Organizers:  Lori Latrice Martin and Hayward Derrick Horton

Description:  The nation will soon pause and remember the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, one of the most catastrophic natural and man-made disasters in American history.  Hurricane Katrina forever changed the physical, social, economic, and demographic landscape of the Gulf Coast.  The devastating storm both revealed and exacerbated a host of social problems, including: crime and deviance, residential segregation, asset poverty, social disorganization, racial tensions, income inequality, unemployment, deviance, substance abuse, dissolution of the family, school segregation, health disparities, disenfranchisement, civic disengagement and environmental justice, among others. We invite papers that critically analyze the effects of Hurricane Katrina on a contemporary social problem.  Panelists may submit papers for publication in a forthcoming special issue of Critical Sociology. 

Please email an abstract of 500-750 words to Lori Latrice Martin at lorim@lsu.edu by April 30, 2014.
