Joshua Nadel and the The Haiti Project

"Humanities in Humanitarianism: the Haiti Project" is a new year-long course taught by Joshua Nadel, a 2012-13 Visiting Faculty Fellow with the Humanities Writ Large initiative at Duke University. Here he talks with Haiti Lab co-director Laurent Dubois about the class, in which students first study the history and theory of humanitarian aid in Haiti and then, during the second semester, organize an international symposium on the subject. It is offered jointly by Duke and North Carolina Central University, Nadel's home institution.
