Discussion Night: Neoliberalism, Katrina, And Volunteerism
More Less
The event creator says
This week, we will be discussing an essay from the book, The Neoliberal Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, Late Capitalism, and the remaking of New Orleans.

The specific essay we shall use as a jump off point for our discussion will be "Charming Accommodations: Progressive Urbanism Meets Privatization in Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation." We will explore the problematic aspects surrounding the remaking of New Orleans post-Katrina and also will discuss volunteerism in a much broader context.

This discussion will also serve as a way to engage with our own ideas about volunteer work and the place we it taking in the building of our own community.

Drinks and revelry to follow after the discussion, as per usual.

See you all there!
