On January 12, 2010, several cities on the island of Haiti, including its capital Port au Prince, were leveled by an earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale. In the aftermath, the world has responded with an outpouring of both financial and emotional support. Media coverage has been round the clock, thus a country that had been long rendered as an afterthought, suddenly became the center of the world. January 12th’s earthquake is as reflective of Haiti’s past as its present, and on February 17th we will gather to explore the earthquake, its aftermath, and the most pressing question of all– how does Haiti recover from a disaster of this magnitude?
