Visiting Faculty Fellow Joshua Nadel and his students in "Humanities in Humanitarianism: the Haiti Project," a joint Duke/NC Central course, have organized a conference that will bring together grassroots activists and donors, international NGO workers and theorists to critically assess both the aims of humanitarian and development aid and the efficacy of aid design and delivery. Humanitarianism in Haiti: Visions and Practice, is hosted by Duke's Haiti Lab. The conference will be the highlight of a year of exciting events that merge research, education, and practical applications of innovative thinking for Haiti’s disaster recovery and for the expansion of Haitian studies in the U.S. and Haiti.
