Martin Luther King Day Lecture: Haiti-A Year Beyond

Martin Luther King Day Lecture:

Haiti—A Year Beyond: Women and Children Last: Stagnation, Bureaucracy and Indifference In Post-Disaster Haiti

Only when a natural disaster touches home does it truly affect one in a way that transcends the news. In this lecture, Fabienne Doucet, PhD., Assistant professor at NYU, discusses how she found herself in this situation last year. She has launched several public initiatives to restore and build communities in Haiti.

Fabienne Doucet is an assistant professor in the department of Teaching and Learning at the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. While a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education, she studied the adaptation and schooling experiences of first and second generation Haitian youth and their families. Her research program addresses the educational experiences of immigrant and U.S.-born children of color.

Fabienne Doucet is the co-founder of Haiti Corps International, which was started after the devastating January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
