neworleans: January 2008 Archives
The Open Society Institute, sponsor of the Katrina Media Fellowship that funded my work in New Orleans, has created a fascinating new website, "Katrina: An Unnatural Disaster". (My own page on the site is here.) It's a great resource, not least because it allows you to explore and cross-reference various strands of the post-Katrina New Orleans experience (culture, insurance, criminal justice, etc.). as well as across media (print, radio, photography, film). I'm in brilliant company in this fellowship, as you'll see, all of us responding to an unnatural disaster by doing what comes naturally -- getting and telling the stories.
