The January 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti struck a country already suffering from widespread poverty and underdevelopment.

Join us as we explore the answer to this and other questions with Dr. Millery Polyné a tenure-track Assistant Professor of American Studies at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study.
