After Sandy: The Seminar

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg, author of Going Solo and Heat Wave, is joined by two graduate students to discuss their research into NYC's response to climate change and Hurricane Sandy. Liz Koslov, a doctoral student in Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU, talks about her research in coastal Staten Island, where residents are trying to figure out if the government will buy them out of their homes, and at what price. Sociology doctoral student Jacob Faber explains his work on the geography of Sandy's impact, in terms of flooding, access to public transit and problems with electricity and sewage.

Eric Klinenberg

Not in a flood zone. But Sandy and all the other storms got me to buy a $60 (smallish) solar panel so I can recharge batteries during those weeks long blackouts that keep happening. And it uses no fuel.

I live solo but would not recommend.
