Tune in at 12:30pm (EDT) today to “Haiti: Can Catastrophe Spur Progress,” a talk by SSRC Program Director William O’Neill, which will be streamed live on the SSRC’s USTREAM channel.

Also, be sure to visit the the SSRC’s ongoing essay forum “Haiti, Now and Next“—as well as a series of related posts here at The Immanent Frame by leading scholars in the humanities and the social sciences with rich funds of regional knowledge (two of which were recently mentioned in a USA Today editorial by Rod Dreher).
