In the aftermath of the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, SLC faculty, staff and students have struggled for a way to make sense of the tragedy and respond to the ongoing humanitarian crisis. While images of profound grief and suffering have been prominent in the news, an analysis of Haiti's history, the vibrancy of its culture and the importance of its political struggles have not been discussed as much. Please join us for a Teach-In on Haiti with four SLC faculty members who will provide historical, political, economic and social analysis on the current situation.
Speakers: Alwin A.D. Jones (Literature), Matilde Zimmermann (History) , Gina Philogene (Psychology) and Jamee Moudud (Economics).
Moderated by: Mary Dillard (History)
Original event date: Monday, February 1, 2010 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
