The Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies is organizing a two-day conference to centralize the ongoing struggles and resiliency of communities of color in post-Katrina New Orleans. This conference coincides with the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and brings together international, national and local thought leaders to discuss recovery, community resilience and place. This concept of resilience will be problematized within the context of disaster in communities that struggle with chronic and toxic stress. A key component will be exploring the role of culture as a protective factor against chronic stress; and the potential for transformation through resilience.
