Approaching the five year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, this research summit aims to return scholars who conducted post-Katrina research back to the Gulf Coast region to share their findings with the communities they once studied. This interdisciplinary conference seeks paper proposals from those who received grants to study the natural, social, political, and economic effects of Hurricane Katrina in its devastating wake to present their research to help communities threatened by natural disasters and chaotic disruptions to become more resilient in the future.
Submission of Abstracts:
Issue areas may include any area or application of community resilience from all academic disciplines, including disaster mitigation, geographic and scientific perspectives, and economic, political, and social resilience.
Abstracts for presentations should be between 250-500 words, and should be sent as attachments in a .doc, .docx, or .pdf format.
