The Humanities Research Center at Rice University offers a weeklong public lecture series featuring speakers from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds who will address the social, cultural, economic, educational, and demographic impact of Hurricane Katrina on the city of Houston. By combining perspectives from the evacuee community, the academy and municipal government, a many-faceted and still-emerging portrait of Houston will be composed.
Michael Eric Dyson, Georgetown University
