Faculty Panel to Examine Environmental and Ecological Impacts of Hurricane Katrina

In connection with filmmaker Spike Lee’s visit to NSU, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology will host a faculty panel discussion titled, “After the Flood,” on Oct. 27. The event will take place from 5 – 6 p.m. in the Mailman-Hollywood Building, second-floor auditorium.

Lee’s award-winning 2006 documentary film When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts showcases the socio-cultural impacts of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans. Premiering in the city exactly one year after Katrina struck, the film depicts devastation, disease, and death after the hurricane. Lee’s follow-up documentary If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise, released in Aug. 2010, returns to New Orleans to examine Katrina’s lasting impact on the city and its inhabitants.

The college’s faculty panel discussion will explore the environmental and ecological impacts of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, the state of Louisiana, and the surrounding region. Panel members from the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences include Paul Baldauf, Ph.D., associate professor; Joshua Feingold, Ph.D., associate professor; Edward O. Keith, Ph.D., associate professor; and Robin Sherman, Ph.D., associate professor/associate director of the Division of Math, Science, and Technology.

The college’s Division of Humanities welcomes Spike Lee, M.F.A., Academy Award-nominated director, producer, screenwriter, and actor, as the next guest in the Distinguished Speakers Series. Lee will speak at NSU on Nov. 3 in the Arena at the Don Taft University Center.
